STORY: POLICE DEFENDS ARREST DELAY DATELINE: July 25, 2011 LENGTH: 0:01:29 LOCATION: Oslo INTRO Apart from shock and grief, many are criticizing the police's slow reaction after receiving report of the shooting attack. But the police have defended the time gap. PKG As more details have emerged, criticism is increasing. Shooting was first heard on Utoya island, northwest of Oslo, at about 4:50 p.m. Friday. Police initially said it took an hour and a half to get to the scene of the massacre. They were slowed because they didn't have quick access to a helicopter and then couldn't find a boat to make their way to the scene just several hundred meters offshore. Only at 6:35 p.m., the suspect put down weapons and surrendered to police. During Sunday's press briefing, a senior police office said the gap was closer to an hour. He said local police in Utoeya formally requested help at 5:38 p.m. and Oslo police reached the island 47 minutes later. And the suspect surrendered tw Powered by www.newslook.com Producer : Xinhua News Agency
