Sweden marks anniversary of Norway attacks

Sweden is marking the two-year anniversary of the Oslo and Utöya terror attacks in Norway that claimed 77 lives and shocked the nation.

Vigils and memorial services are being held across the country today, and services were also held on Sunday, with a minutes' silence observed at one ceremony in central Stockholm.

On July 22, 2011, Anders Brevik set off explosions in central Oslo that killed eight, and then shot and killed 69 people on the island of Utöya. The majority of the victims were members of the youth wing of Norway's Labour Party, who were attending a summer camp.
