The BBC is reporting that at least 84 people were killed in a shooting spree at a youth camp in Norway. This tragedy followed closely behind the bombing in Oslo that killed at least seven. As news of the attacks first broke, virtually everyone seemed to assume that Muslim terrorists were responsible. It now appears that the culprit may have been a Christian terrorist.
Norwegian police have identified Anders Behring Breivik, a 32 year-old man who police have described as a right-wing Christian fundamentalist, as a suspect. There are conflicting reports, with some describing Breivik as a suspect being questioned and others claiming that he has been arrested.
My thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims of this senseless attack. We will have plenty of time to learn about the motives of those responsible.
