The father of one of the teenagers shot on Utøya has lodged a formal complaint against the Norwegian Police, reports say.
Yasin Jamil alleges his daughter Rafal, would be alive today if authorities had done their job.
“Normal people who leave an injured person to lie down without any help would be punished, and in this case it’s about police who are supposed to help us whenever we’re in danger. They are only concerned about defending themselves, but what are we supposed to do about police who can’t do their jobs?” Stavanger Aftenblad reports him as saying.

Lawyer for the family, Kari Nessa Nordtun, plans to see if other aggrieved wish to join them in their legal move. The matter has been sent to the police complaints authority.
