Norwegian Muslims gather to pray for UtÃ¸ya attack victims on 5th anniversary
Muslims from across Norway gathered on the island of UtÃ¸ya to pray for victims of the Norway attacks.
Six years ago in 2011 34-year-old Anders Breivik shot and killed 69 people on the very same island. The Island is owned by Norwayâ€™s Labour party and most of Breivikâ€™s victims were members of the Labour partyâ€™s youth wing.
On August 19, 2016, the countryâ€™s oldest Muslim Youth association hosted their annual youth retreat in union with the Labour partyâ€™s youth wing. During the retreat, the Muslim youth held a special prayer service in remembrance of the Norway attack victims and pledged to be law abiding and loyal Norwegians.
The three days event was attended by representatives of the Labour party and the Mayor of UtÃ¸ya.
