Centre right party wins in Norway

10:38 am on 10 September 2013

Norway's Labour prime minister, Jens Stoltenberg, has conceded defeat in the country's parliamentary elections.

It is Norway's first general election since attacks by a far-right extremist killed 77 people in 2011.

The centre-right bloc, led by Erna Solberg's Conservative party, is to take over, but she may need the support of the anti-immigration and anti-tax Progress Party.

Dozens of Labour Party youth activists, who survived Anders Behring Breivik's shooting spree on the island of Utoeya in 2011, stood for parliament.

But the wave of sympathy for Labour in the wake of the attacks seems to have evaporated.
