Mourning a legend
The headquarters of the Norwegian Labour Party and the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions both flew the flag at half staff today in honour of Haakon Lie, the legendary Labour politician who died at the age of 103 yesterday. The death of this giant was naturally the lead story in most of the newspapers today. It has been announced that his funeral will be at Samfunnssalen at Oslo Workers' Society at 1 p.m. on 5 June.
