Aftermath of the Norway Attacks
Norway is mourning the shooting deaths of at least 68 people at a youth camp on the small island of Uoteya. The massacre came hours after a powerful explosion rocked central Oslo, killing at least eight people and blowing out most of the windows on the block where Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg works. For journalists and news managers covering the aftermath of these attacks, the Dart Center has assembled resources and tipsheets gleaned from past mass shootings, terrorist attacks and disasters.
