Norway has begun identifying the victims of twin attacks by Anders Breivik in Oslo and Utoya island last Friday.

Among them were:

— the 51-year-old stepbrother of Norway's crown princess, Trond Bernsten; 

— a police officer who died while saving his 10-year-old son; 

— Ismail Haji Ahmed, a 20-year-old dancer who appeared on "Norway's Got Talent;"

— Johannes Buo, who at 14 was the youngest victim;

— Monica Bosei, 45, known as the mother of Utoya island, who was running to warn others about the shooter when she was shot herself; and

— Simon Saebo, 18, who was an up-and-coming politician who was given the nickname JFK.

Norway's NRK, Britain's Sky News and the Daily Mirror were among those who have created pages featuring photos and brief biographies of the dead.

Identification of all 76 victims may be completed by Thursday, Sky News reports.
