British Foreign Secretary William Hague offered his condolences Friday to all those bereaved or injured as a result of a "horrific" bomb attack in Oslo, saying he condemned all forms of terrorism.

"I send my deepest condolences to all those who have lost relatives or been injured in todays horrific bomb blast in Oslo," Hague said in a statement.

He added: "We condemn all acts of terrorism.

"The UK stands shoulder to shoulder with Norway and all our international allies in the face of such atrocities. We are committed to work tirelessly with them to combat the threat from terrorism in all its forms."

About 250,000 Britons visit Norway every year, according to the Foreign Office, and Hague said that the British embassy was ready to help any British nationals caught up in the attack.
