The suspect in Norway's twin attacks that killed at least 92 people says he acted alone, police said Sunday, after some witness accounts said a second gunman had taken part in a mass shooting.

But police are still trying to establish whether there was "one or several" shooters at Friday's attack on a Labour Party youth meeting on Utoeya island, northwest of Oslo, police commissioner Sveinung Sponheim told journalists.

"During questioning, he said he acted alone," Sponheim said. "We will try to verify this through our inquiry."
