OSLO: A bomb devastated the main government building in Norway's capital Oslo on Friday, killing 7 people, and a gunman killed 4 people hours later in a shooting at a youth camp, state media reported.
Sky's security editor Sam Kiley said a specialist swat team had carried out the arrest.
"The fact they captured him alive is a major breakthrough because they will be able to establish from him if it is an ongoing attack," he said.
"The intelligence community has been expecting that a Mumbai-style attack has been imminent since a year ago.
"The worst-case scenario is not just multiple attacks in one country, but in several countries.
"So we can expect to see a rise in preventative security."
Security expert Bob Ayers said there are only a limited amount of things that can be done to protect people.
"The only thing (authorities) can do is interfere in the planning phase before people are killed.
"If you can not do that, you have to be prepared to react rapidly."
How awful! What kind of people could get that mad at Norway???
Thoughts are with the victims.
The Norwegian ultra-right could be behind these attacks, even if it was simply a lone wolf, but each time these attacks occur, a great number of people assume Islamists were involved and a small group of people castigate them for prejudice. At the same time, this same small group of people assume (or hope) that right-wingers are involved.
Far more times, than not, the attacks involve Islamists, not right-wingers, and yet the "small group" keeps castigating and hoping.
Sooner or later a blind squirrel finds an acorn. Perhaps the acorn is Norwegian.
According to CNN there had been "chatter" concerning Muslim terrorists and Norway prior to these incidents. Obviously this doesn't mean that Muslim terrorists were behind these attacks,but it suggests the possibility.
Either this guy had a belt-fed machinegun or there were several killers.
