Georgian Girl Missing After Norway Island Massacre
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 24 Jul.'11 / 16:58

Tamta Liparteliani, a Georgian girl is among those several people, who are still missing after a gunman killed at least 85 participants of a youth camp on Norway's island of Utøya on Friday.

Native of Kutaisi, Georgia's second largest city in western part of the country, Liparteliani was among around 700 participants of the summer camp organized by the youth wing of the Norway's ruling Labor Party.

Another Georgian participant of the youth camp, Natia Chkhetiani, also from Kutaisi, survived in the attack, which is the worst in Europe since Madrid train bombings in 2004.

Both of them are members of Kutaisi branch of movement Young Socialists of Georgia.

Natia Chkhetiani said the last time when she saw her friend was shortly before the shooting started. Some were jumping into water trying to escape the attack; Natia said she too wanted to follow others, but changed her mind after seeing bullet hitting a boy after jumping into water. She said she did not know whether her friend, Tamta, jumped into the water or not.

Tamta Liparteliani's mother said her daughter could not swim.

Some reports put number of people who are still missing at four or five.

Police in Norway said they were seeking several missing people and the toll from the island attack could rise, Reuters reported.

The search, using a mini-submarine, will continue for several days, as currents could have carried the bodies some way away from the island, BBC reported.
