About a thousand youth members of the Norwegian Labour Party have gathered on the island of Utoya for the first time since a 2011 massacre there.

Right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik killed 69 people in his rampage on July 22, 2011, hunting down participants at a camp of the Labour Party's youth wing on the tiny island in the middle of a lake.

A handful of survivors are among those attending the annual camp over the weekend.
