First video from Utoya Island following a massacre that left several dozen dead in Norway on Friday. The video appears to show several deceased victims, who were likely shot at as they attempted to flee the island as reports have indicated. [YouTube]

After the success of our recent piece on Rupert Murdoch, we felt that we would try this again with breaking news. We don’t have a good name for this idea yet, so for now we’re going to call it a Tumbl-zine — a magazine article designed for Tumblr. We will update this story as the situation changes, so please come back to ShortFormBlog’s article for the latest updates. (Sources used include: Reuters, BBC, The Telegraph, MSNBC, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Document.No)

Update Saturday, 10:24 a.m. ET: Added reported blog comments from the suspect, many anti-Muslim in nature, spotted via ProducerMatthew.

Update Sunday, 9:28 a.m. ET: Added details about the suspect’s manifesto (both the video and book-length tome) and his confession.
