Explosion Rocks Oslo Gov't Offices

NORWAY police urged residents of Oslo today to avoid big gatherings and stay home after a powerful bomb rocked government and media buildings in the capital, causing deaths and injuries.
Police said a bomb caused the explosion, and Norwegian media reported that at least two people had died and several were injured.
In a separate incident, a man disguised as a police officer opened fire at a youth meeting of the ruling Labour Party in Utoeya, an island on the outskirts of the capital Oslo, state television NRK reported.
Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg had at one point been scheduled to attend the event, police said.
