From Reuters, a report on the funeral for 18 year old Bano Rashid, killed at Utoya by Anders Behring Brevik:

In Nesodden, south of Oslo, the first of the funerals was held, for Bano Rashid, an 18-year-old woman who came to Norway in 1996 with her family fleeing Kurdistan in northern Iraq. She was shot dead at the summer camp.

Rashid was the first to be buried in a newly consecrated Muslim section of the cemetery by the picturesque stone-and-wood church, built in 1175. Several hundred mourners followed her casket to the grave, led by a Lutheran priest and an imam.

“We have many Muslims living here now, so she will not be alone there for long,” the Islamic cleric, Senaid Kobilica of Bosnia, said of the new area of the cemetery.

“Seeing the imam and the priest walking together from the church was a mighty image — the strongest message that can be sent to counter the forces we have been witness to,” Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere said.
