A Norwegian government-appointed commission has sharply criticized local police and national security for not preventing or responding quickly enough to last year's twin terror attacks that claimed 77 lives.

The 10-member commission revealed today in a 481-page report that the car bomb attack by Anders Behring Breivik on the government complex could have been prevented by "effective implementation of already adopted security measures" and that the police could have stopped Mr. Breivik sooner than it did during his shooting rampage on the island of Utøya.
