OSLO, July 22 (Xinhua) -- Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg on Friday called on its people to stay together after two deadly attacks, in which at least 17 people were killed earlier in the day.

At a joint press conference held on Friday night with Justice Minister Knut Storberget, Stoltenberg said that the attacks would not destroy the Norwegian political system although "we are all shaken by the evil that hit us so brutally and abruptly."

"We will find the culprit. But the most important thing tonight is to save lives and care," said Stoltenberg.

The prime minister delivered a message to those behind the attacks. "No one shall bomb us into silence," he said.

Stoltenberg said that the prime ministers of the other four Nordic countries and Britain have expressed support and solidarity with Norway.
