SUNDVOLLEN, Norway (Reuters) - Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said Norwegian officials are working with foreign intelligence agencies to see if there was any international involvement in the bomb and shooting that together have killed 91 people.

"We have running contact with other countries' intelligence services," Stoltenberg said after meeting with survivors at a hotel near the scene of the island gun attack that killed 84.

"Some of the investigation is under way," he said. "Some of it is obviously to.... investigate whether there are any international connections."
