(Newser) – The body of a young Georgian woman missing after the shooting rampage on a Norwegian island has been found, say officials. Tamta Liparteliani was at a youth camp on Utoya island last week when far-right extremist Anders Behring Breivik killed 68 people. Her parents traveled to Norway with Georgian Foreign Ministry officials to look for her, with hopes of finding her alive. But Liparteliani's body had been found on the bottom of the lake with gunshot wounds in the back, a deputy foreign minister announced today. She was identified by her fingerprints.

Another Georgian woman who was at the camp survived. Both women were university graduates and activists in the Young Socialists youth group, which sent them to Norway. (Click to read more on the maximum sentence Anders Behring Breivik could face.)
