Norway Prime Minister says camp shooting deaths likely to rise

OSLO, Norway — Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg says police fear the death toll at youth camp shooting will rise above 10.

Stoltenberg confirmed that the current number of people killed was nine or 10, but police "fear that there could be more."

Norway's Justice Minister Knut Storberget said the man who opened fire at a youth camp is Norwegian. He said seven people were killed and 10 wounded when a bomb exploded at the prime minister's office in downtown Oslo earlier Friday.

Police have linked the suspect to both attacks.
