Solidarity with Norwegian people

    July 26, 2011


    Amnesty International sends its condolences to the victims and their families of these terrible events.

    The organization expresses solidarity with the people of Norway as they try to move on from the bombing and shootings carried out in Norway on 22 July 2011 that took the lives of more than 70 people.

    Amnesty International’s 3 million supporters are at one with the Norwegian people, standing together for an open and diverse society where people are able to express their opinions peacefully.  

    These atrocities have come as a shock to the entire world and the international community is appalled by the flagrant disregard for human life shown by the perpetrator of these crimes, Amnesty International said.  
     

    Times like these test a nation but the organization has every belief that the Norwegian authorities will ensure that the human rights of the victims, including the families of those who were killed, are fully respected, and that the person or persons responsible are brought to justice in fair proceedings.
