The Norwegian police announced during a press conference that Anders Behring Breivik, the 32-years-old Norwegian man arrested on Friday and charged over the bomb attack in Oslo and the massacre at Utøya Island, have confessed.
Breivik killed 85 people in the shooting at the annual summer camp of the country’s ruling Labour party of Utøya, and seven were the victims of the bombing in the government quarter in center of the capital Oslo. Five are the people still missing and 20 those seriously injured. Thus, the death toll could rise further in the next hours.
On his Facebook page the killer described himself has Christian and conservative, with a passion for hunting and war videogames. He was defined by the police a “Christian fundamentalist” strongly hostile to Islam. According to the Norwegian press the man was also tied to extreme-right groups.
On the web site www.document.no he published some posts which show his nationalist ideas and his aversion to multicultural society. More than one year ago in a post he defined the labourist Gro Harlem Brundlandt, who had been Prime Minister for three legislatures between 1981 and 1996, as the “killer of the country”. She also participated at the Labour party’s rally at Utøya on Friday and made a speech a few hours before the shooting.
Owning a farm Breivik could buy a kind of fertilizer that can also be used to make bombs, and practicing hunting we could own several registered weapons.
An eyewitness reported there was another killer at the island, but it’s not clear yet if he had a partner or not.
