Americans carried flowers and sent messages to Norway's embassy in Washington on Sunday in support of that nation's people following two deadly attacks.
The flowers sat in clumps outside the embassy on Washington's Massachusetts Avenue, and the wall of the embassy's Facebook page grew rapidly with condolences.
"Keep faith in each other, and in the principles of your just and decent society. You are not alone,'' wrote Patrick Landers.
"Please don't let the hate of one person change the wonderful spirit of your country,'' said Janette E. Hansen.
The condolences followed President Obama's words of support on Saturday to Norway as it recovers from the bomb blast in a government office building and a mass shooting at a youth camp on Friday that killed at least 93 people.
