Deaths and injuries have been reported after a bomb rocked the government building housing the Norwegian prime minister's office in the capital Oslo at 3:30pm [1230GMT] on Friday.

At least seven people have been killed in Norway in two separate attacks, the first a bomb blast that went off at a government building housing the prime minister's office and the second a shooting incident at an annual youth event.

"We can confirm that we have seven dead and two have been seriously injured," a police spokesman told reporters at a briefing in Oslo.
