Penembakan brutal terjadi di suatu pulau di Norwegia, Jumat 22 Juli 2011 waktu setempat. Penembakan yang berlangsung di suatu kamp itu terjadi beberapa saat setelah ledakan bom menghancurkan sejumlah gedung di Ibukota Oslo, termasuk kantor perdana menteri Norwegia.

Menurut kantor berita Associated Press, penembakan berlangsung di Pulau Utoya, tepatnya di suatu kamp pelatihan kaum muda Partai Buruh. Pulau itu berjarak sekitar 30 km dari Ibukota Oslo.
Pelaku penembakan adalah seorang pria yang berpakaian mirip seragam polisi. Identitas pelaku belum diketahui. Muncul pula laporan polisi telah menangkap seorang yang dicurigai terlibat penembakan itu. Dia juga dicurigai terlibat atas aksi pengeboman di Oslo. 

Mengutip keterangan sementara polisi setempat, laman harian The New York Times mengungkapkan penembakan brutal itu menewaskan hingga sepuluh orang. Namun, jumlah korban tewas dikhawatirkan bertambah. Seorang saksi mengaku melihat antara 20 hingga 25 orang sudah tidak bernyawa.

"Anak-anak terlihat berenang dalam keadaan panik. Padahal Utoya jauh dari daratan utama," kata Bjorn Jarle Roberg-Larsen, seorang anggota Partai Buruh yang berada di pulau itu. "Ada pula yang memilih bersembunyi. Mereka tidak mau berbicara dan sangat takut," lanjut dia.

Sementara itu Kepolisian Norwegia mengkonfirmasi bahwa ledakan di kantor perdana menteri berasal dari sebuah bom. Sejauh ini, tujuh orang dilaporkan tewas dan belasan lainnya terluka.

Belum ada pihak manapun yang mengaku bertanggungjawab atas insiden itu. Ledakan dahsyat merusak gedung pemerintah Norwegia di Ibukota Oslo, termasuk kantor Perdana Menteri Jens Stoltenberg dan Kementerian Perminyakan. Namun Stoltenberg dikabarkan selamat dari ledakan itu.

Kuala Lumpur - Pengadilan Malaysia hari ini memerintahkan seorang blogger untuk membayar ganti rugi kepada Menteri Informasi Komunikasi dan Budaya, Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim karena telah memfitnah menteri tersebut dalam sebuah artikel blog.

Blogger tersebut, Amizudin Ahmat diperintahkan membayar 400 ribu ringgit (sekitar Rp 1,13 miliar) atas artikel blognya yang menyebut Rais memperkosa pembantu rumah tangganya yang berasal dari Indonesia. Demikian seperti diberitakan kantor berita resmi Malaysia, Bernama, Selasa (19/7/2011).

Pada Januari lalu, Rais (69) menuntut Amizudin (42) yang juga merupakan anggota komite pemuda Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), atas fitnah lewat artikel yang diposting di blog Amizudin, pada sekitar 28 Desember 2010 lalu.

Dalam putusannya hari ini, Hakim Datin Zabariah Mohd Yusof mengatakan, ganti rugi tersebut layak diterima Rais mengingat fakta-fakta dan sifat tuduhan tersebut.

Dalam tuntutannya, Rais menegaskan bahwa semua tulisan dalam artikel berbahasa Melayu itu bersifat dengki dan memfitnah dirinya.

Dalam artikel itu disebutkan Rais telah memperkosa seorang TKW asal Indonesia yang bekerja sebagai PRT di rumahnya selama 8 tahun.

Menurut Hakim Zabariah, tuduhan itu sangat serius dan bukan cuma bisa merusak reputasi Rais secara nasional dan internasional. Namun juga bisa mengganggu kehidupan pribadi Rais dan keluarganya.

CARS THAT ATTRACT THE MOST TRFFIC TICKETSDoes what we drive affect how we drive? That’s the question posed by Quality Planning , an analytics company that works with auto insurers. Quality Planning ranked the vehicles most likely to be ticketed, based on the number of moving violations issued for each 100,000 miles driven. The resulting top ten of the list contains a few predictable entries, but it’s not entirely comprised of flashy red sports cars.

But before we begin the list of the worst behaved vehicles, a rundown of the good guys. The top five “cautious vehicles,” that is, the ones with the lowest percentage of violations, are:

5. Buick Lacrosse sedan
4. Kia Spectra sedan
3. Chevrolet C/K 3500/2500
2. Mazda Tribute SUV
1. Buick Ranier SUV

Eight of the top ten cautious vehicles were SUVs or minivans, indicating drivers with passengers (probably of the younger, biological offspring sort) drive more carefully. Click ahead to see the countdown of the worst offenders—or as they are termed in the study, “spirited vehicles,” with commentary from Marty Padgett of and and additional information and insight provided by Quality Planning.

10. Volkswagen GTI Hatchback
Violations*: 178%
Average Age: 40
% Male: 44%

The Volkswagen GTI hatchback is the perennial favorite with younger drivers looking for a sporty, fun German car. “The VW GTI wants you to drive fast,” reasons Padgett. “Why else would they turbocharge it, and give it the most entertaining handling of any Volkswagen, period? Enthusiastic handling attracts enthusiastic owners—and since it's been in production since the 1980s, there are thousands of GTIs out there accumulating points faster than, say, the entire NHL.”

*Violations/100,000 miles driven, expressed as percentage of average.

9. Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG  
Violations: 179%
Average Age: 47
% Male: 44%

No surprise here, say the researchers at Quality Planning — This is Mercedes' most powerful convertible makes it very tempting to drive in a spirited fashion. “Mercedes CLK63 AMG - A last-generation Mercedes coupe that's been replaced by the latest E-Class Coupe, the CLK paired sexy styling with huge AMG power, says Padgett. “As with the CLS and SL, these Benz buyers can probably afford a ticket here and there, and aren't worried about a moving violation or parking infraction when there's a sale going on at Restoration Hardware.”

8. Pontiac Grand Prix Sedan
Violations: 182%
Average Age: 40
% Male: 41%

Pontiac's sporty and inexpensive model attracts price-conscious, aggressive drivers, according to Quality Planning. “The Pontiac Grand Prix doesn't have the same street cred as some of the other cars on this list,” says Padgett, “but it has an attitude in its looks that probably has parallels in the people who buy them second and third-hand. Supercharged versions were available, too, so it's not out of the question to rocket up to 120 or 125 mph in one, if it's still in good shape after all these years.”

7. Acura Integra Coupe
Violations: 185%
Average Age: 33
% Male: 60%

This sporty import is popular with younger men, who insurers know to be more risky drivers. Padgett points out that the Acura Integra hasn't even been sold brand-new in America since the mid-1990s.“The fact that the cars still exist, and are still getting so many citations, is a testament to its durability and its spirited performance—and more proof to Honda that it needs to go back to building more cars like this one.”

6. Mercedes-Benz CLS-63 AMG Sedan
Violations: 264%
Average Age: 46
% Male: 58%

Another big and powerful Benz makes the ticketed list. “The Mercedes-Benz CLS just looks gorgeous at speed, so we should applaud those drivers putting it to its highest, best use,” says Padgett. “The CLS 63 AMG is the strongest performer in the CLS lineup--it's the equivalent to BMW's M5 or the Cadillac CTS-V—so it's no surprise its owners exercise every one of its 507 horsepower whenever they can.”
