Only one missing after Norway shooting: Media

Oslo police declined to comment on the report concerning the Utoeya island missing when asked.

Oslo: The number of people missing after
last week`s mass shooting attack on an island near Oslo has
dropped from five to one, Norway`s TV2 television channel
quoted police as saying on Wednesday.

Another station, public NRK, said police now also
believe no-one is missing in the wreckage from Friday`s
initial bombing attack on downtown government offices, whereas
previously the authorities had said they were checking for an
unknown number of missing.

Oslo police declined to comment on the report
concerning the Utoeya island missing when asked.

"We don`t comment on the number of missing. We only
comment on the number of dead or wounded," said police
spokesman Sturla Henriksboe
"I don`t know where TV2 got their figure from. I can
neither confirm nor deny."

Police did on Saturday announce that there were four
or five people missing from the island of Utoeya, where 68
people were shot dead on Friday, shortly after eight people
were killed in a car bombing in nearby Oslo.
