Police publish names of 77 Norway terror victims

As Norwegian police publish names of the 77 people killed in Oslo and Utoya nearly a week ago, Channel 4 News takes a closer look at the victims, some as young as 14.

Sharidyn Svebakk-Bohn, 14, was killed on Utoya island

All 77 names have now been released by officials in Norway following Friday’s massacre. As details emerge, a picture grows from social networks, blogs and video-sharing sites of the people who lost their lives.

Sharidyn Svebakk-Bohn, 14

Known as Sissi, she regularly posted on a blog called Purple In Style – which she said was “based on the life of a not-so-normal girl”. Her last post was on the 20th, just a few hours after she arrived on Utoya island and two days before she was killed. She gave advice to other people planning their first trip to the island – including warning them to bring “normal clothes”, wellington boots and a torch.

Three days earlier, on the 17th, she had turned 14 and posted pictures of cards and presents she received.

Birgitte Smetbak, 15

A video uploaded to YouTube in June 2009 appears to show Birgitte singing the Leonard Cohen song Hallelujah. Underneath it, people have written “RIP”, and one person has posted “you are deeply missed. Hope you are doing well where you are now”.

On a photo-sharing site, Birgitte has uploaded several pictures – including postcards claiming “true love never gets old” and “the world is full of beautiful things”.

Silje Merete Fjellbu, 17

Silje was a keen photographer who posted on several blog sites. On one, she had written “there is nothing better than to look at the world through a camera lens”. She posted many photos of herself in a variety of different outfits, and just two months before she died, she uploaded some photos of herself entitled in English “The summer is getting near – let’s rock!” Underneath pictures from her prom night, she has written “I wish I could look like this every day”.

Trond Bernsten, 51

An off-duty policeman and the step-brother of the crown princess of Norway, Mr Bernsten was apparently on the island working as a security guard. Some reports stated he tried to arrest Breivik, and that Mr Bernsten died protecting his 10-year-old son from being shot.

Gunnar Linakar, 23

The son of a Labour party activist, Roald Linakar, Gunnar phoned his dad from Utoya. It was reported that his last words were “dad, someone is shooting”. Some witnesses apparently said Gunnar had been shielding younger campers when he was killed. It is thought that Gunnar’s younger sister was also at the camp, but she survived the attack.
