09:02 One of the guards who witnessed the Oslo bombing is being questioned. On July 22 it took them several minutes to notice that a white van had been parked in a no parking zone which apparently happens frequently. The guard in question zoomed the camera in on the license plate and the car exploded as he was doing so.

09:52 Senior Adviser Svein Olav Christensen, an expert witness, estimates the power of the car bomb at 400-700 kg of TNT. In comparison, Timothy McVeigh's bomb was the equivalent of 2300 kg of TNT.

11:06 Thor Langli, a police officer who was in charge of the rescue effort in Oslo, is questioned. He mentions he got a call that two more bombs may be in the building, forcing him to pull out rescuers and send in a bomb squat.

12:57 Police Superintendent Eva Birkefeldt Ragde from Oslo police is being questioned. She confirms it was an awesome explosion.

I think everyone agrees that this blog post would be worthless without vids.
