U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the United States strongly condemns terrorism no matter who perpetuates it or where it comes from.
Clinton adds that the explosion and shootings in Norway that so far have claimed more than 90 lives "strikes right at the heart and soul of a peaceful people."
Clinton points out that Norway is well-known for conflict resolution and bringing people together.
Speaking in Bali to a meeting of Indonesian entrepreneurs, Clinton said that American hearts go out to the victims' families and to the Norwegian people and government. She added that the tragic event is a reminder of how precious the gift of life is.
A suspect in custody is being questioned for both assaults and is cooperating with the investigators.
