The first funerals have been held for the victims of the Friday 22nd terror attacks.
A memorial service was also held on Friday by Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg's ruling Labor Party. Stoltengerg told attendees that the attacks had brought out the best in the country, and that hatred would be defeated by compassion.
A recent opinion poll shows that support for the ruling Labor Party surged by about 10 points following the attacks.
Prime Minister Stoltenberg has won widespread praise for his handling of the crisis. The death toll from the twin attacks was recently raised to 77.
