Mourning period in Norway ends with remembrance service

Norway’s official mourning period for victims of a bombing and shooting rampage ended yesterday with a national remembrance ceremony in Oslo, CNN reported. The Oslo bombing and Utoya island shooting killed a total of 77 people last month. The ceremony comes a day after survivors returned for the first time to the site of the island shooting, where the gunman killed 69 people. He also bombed the Oslo government buildings on the same day, killing eight more people. Before the survivors’ visit, relatives of those killed traveled to the island Friday for the first time to see where their loved ones spent their final moments.
