Massacre in Norway- مجزرة في النرويج

On July 22, 2011 Norway was hit by a terrorist attack. As news outlets streamed video in Oslo with debris and glass filled streets it became evident that this was intentional. Roughly two hours later word of another attack surfaced this time at a summer camp filled with teens. Quickly rumors spread and Muslim extremists were the ones to blame. Through journalism ethics we learned reporters were to seek the truth and report it, minimize harm, act independently, and to be accountable none of these were accomplished. We came to find out later that Anders Behring Breivik a 32 year old right-wing extremist was behind the attacks and not any Muslim terrorist organization. The blonde hair Christian attacker said it was to prevent the take over of Norway by the Muslim religion.
