Norway pays silent tribute to attacks' victims

Norway blast
Oslo, Jul 25: Norway observed a minute's silence today as the country paid solemn tribute to the victims of last week's twin bomb and shooting attacks that left 93 dead.

Thousands of people bowed their heads in silence outside Oslo's main university at a ceremony led by Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and King Harald V who then signed a book of condolences inside.

"To remember the victims who died at the government's headquarters and on the island of Utoeya, I declare a minute of silence," said Stotenberg.

From the stock market to the country's airports and train stations, Norway came to a halt to mark the nation's deadliest tragedy since World War II.
