Congressman Collin C. Peterson, a member of the Congressional Friends of Norway Caucus, issued this statement about the bomb attack and shootings in Norway:

“Hearing news of the tragedy in Norway was heartbreaking to me and to the many Norwegian Americans who live in western Minnesota. I’m deeply saddened by the injuries and loss of life resulting from this senseless act of violence, and my prayers are with victims and families of the bomb attack.

As the people of Norway mourn their losses, the people of Minnesota’s Seventh District stand strong with them.”
