Oslo, Norway attacks featured on front pages across the globe

Newspaper front pages around the world show the staggering effects of twin attacks in Norway -- one in downtown Oslo and one at a summer camp about 25 miles outside the city. You can see the death toll rise as different papers use increasing numbers on their front pages. Many pages feature a photo of the 32-year-old Norwegian man who police say has confessed to the bombing and shootings. I've highlighted pages from Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, and Spain, along with some from Canada and Australia. A selection of European and U.S. front pages featured the news from Norway on Saturday's fronts, though many gave space to it on their Sunday pages as well, while some ignored the attacks entirely.
