The first was a car bomb explosion in Oslo at the executive government quarter of Norway, at 15:25:22. The explosion killed eight people and injured at least 209 people, twelve of them seriously.
The second attack occurred less than two hours later at a summer camp on the island of Ut°ya in Tyrifjorden, Buskerud. A gunman dressed in a homemade police uniform and showing false identification[15][16] gained access to the island and subsequently opened fire at the participants, killing 69 of them, and injuring at least 110, 55 of them seriously. It was the deadliest attack in Norway since World War II.
