Oslo (Norway): A panel investigating Norway`s
response to the July 22 attacks that killed 77 people has
toured government offices in Oslo that were ravaged by a car
bomb.

Commission head Alexandra Bech Gjoerv told reporters
today she was deeply moved by the visit to the government
district, where eight people were killed by the explosion.

The block in central Oslo has been sealed off since the
blast, with debris still being cleared from area. It remains
unclear whether some of the most badly damaged buildings need
to be torn down.

Andes Bearing Breivik, an anti-Muslim extremist, has
confessed that he detonated the car bomb and later shot and
killed 69 people at an island youth camp outside Oslo.
