Norway honours victims of 2011 terror attacks

By The Associated Press

COPENHAGEN - Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg says the best way to honour the 77 people who died in terror attacks three years ago is to "fight for openness, tolerance and diversity."

In a wreath-laying ceremony Tuesday, Solberg said "violent extremism can never be excused."

Far-right fanatic Anders Behring Breivik has confessed to the July 22, 2011, attacks in which he killed eight people in a bombing attack against the government headquarters and 69 others in a shooting spree at the left-wing Labor Party's youth camp on Utoya island. A ceremony will be held at Utoya later Tuesday.
