Georgia, Tbilisi, July 28 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
The body of Georgian citizen Tamta Liparteliani, missing in Norway after a youth camp shooting, was found at the bottom of a lake, Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze said at a special briefing.
"This is a great tragedy for all of us", she said. "The Foreign Ministry offers condolences to the family of the deceased."
She said that the girl had a gunshot wound in her back.
Kalandadze expressed hope that the Norwegian side will take proper measures to rapidly transport the girl's body to Georgia. "Naturally, there are certain formalities, but the Georgian Foreign Ministry will take all necessary actions", she said.
She said that the family of the deceased will receive compensation from Norwegian authorities. The expenses of transporting the girl's body back home will be taken on by Norway.
Last Friday a man dressed in police uniform shot about 90 people at a youth camp of the ruling Labour party on the Utoya Island. A little earlier, a large explosion shook the government building in Oslo. In total, some 93 people were victims of both incidents.
Anders Behring Breivik, 32 years old, is charged with killing at least 86 people on the island of Utoya on Friday, where the ruling Labour Party has a summer youth camp. Seven more people died in a bomb attack in Oslo earlier on Friday.
