Commemorations held to mark anniversary of attacks in Oslo and Utoeya

Norwegians have been commemorating one year since 77 people were killed and 242 hurt in gun and bomb attacks in Oslo and on the island of Utoeya. Anders Behring Breivik, the man who has admitted carrying out the two attacks, remains on trial.
