Norway’s capital, Oslo, hit by deadly blast, shootings
July 22, 2011


BERLIN — A massive explosion rocked a government district in Norway’s capital Friday, killing seven people and injuring many more, and a shooter at a political convention on an island north of Oslo appeared to have inflicted more casualties, in incidents police are treating as connected, a police spokesman said.

“Central Oslo looks more like a battlefield,” said Runar Kvernen, a spokesman for the police directorate who was reached by telephone. “The headquarters of the Norwegian government is almost destroyed. It damaged a lot of a of buildings.”

 ::snipping2::

Kvernen said that police had shut down central Oslo and were urging people to “get home and stay inside. “We are not 100 percent sure what we are dealing with here,” he said.
 ::snipping2::
Kvernen also described “another very dramatic situation” on an island north of Oslo where a youth political conference of the ruling Labor Party was being held. Shots had been fired on the island, he said, and one gunman arrested.

Norway’s TV2 reported that at least two people had died on the island. Kvernen said that police did not believe that more assailants were currently on the island, but that he feared there would be many casualties.

“This is really bad,” he said. “The police have reason to believe that these incidents are connected.”

Norwegian news agency NTB said that former prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland had been present at the conference, which was being held on Utoya Island, about 25 miles from the capital, and that Stoltenberg was scheduled to speak there tomorrow.

Who is the suspect in the Norway attacks?
By the CNN Wire Staff
July 23, 2011 10:11 a.m. EDT

CNN) -- As Norway struggles to come to terms with its greatest loss of life in decades, all eyes are on the man charged in the explosion in central Oslo and the deadly shooting rampage at a youth camp.

While police have not officially named him, Norwegian television and newspaper reports have identified the suspect as 32-year-old Anders Behring Breivik, of Norwegian origin.

A picture is emerging, gleaned from official sources and social media, of a right-wing Christian fundamentalist who may have had an issue with Norway's multi-cultural society.

Death toll reaches 92 as Norwegian police search for more victims
July 23, 2011

Norwegian police searched for more victims and a possible second gunman on Saturday after a suspected right-wing zealot killed up to 85 people in a shooting spree and bomb attack that have traumatised a once-placid country.
The 32-year-old Norwegian named Anders Behring Breivik was arrested after Friday’s massacre of young people on a tiny forested holiday island that was hosting the annual summer camp for the youth wing of Norway’s ruling Labour party.

Mr. Breivik was also charged for the bombing of Oslo’s government district that killed seven people hours earlier.

If convicted on the terrorism charges, he would face a maximum of 21 years in jail, police said.

Mr. Breivik had belonged to an anti-immigration party and wrote blogs attacking multiculturalism and Islam, but police said he had been unknown to them and that his Internet activity traced so far included no calls for violence.
 ::snipping2::
A police SWAT team eventually arrived from Oslo, 30 kilometres away, to seize Mr. Breivik after nearly 90 minutes of firing, acting police chief Sveinung Sponheim told a news conference.

“We don’t know yet” if he acted alone, Mr. Sponheim said, adding that Mr. Breivik had surrendered immediately and had confessed.

Mr. Sponheim said 85 people were known to have died in the shooting and seven in the Oslo bomb blast. The overall death toll could reach 98 if some missing people proved to have died.

Norway attacks: Details emerge in Oslo bombing, camp shooting
July 23, 2011

The gunman who went on a shooting rampage at a youth camp on an island near Olso on Friday fired shots from two weapons for an hour and a half before surrendering to authorities, Norwegian police officials said Saturday.

It took police 40 minutes to get on the island after Anders Behring Breivik began shooting
, Police Chief Sveinung Sponheim said at a news conference. He told reporters that police officials had responded as "quickly as possible" but there were problems getting boats to transport officials to Utoya Island, where the Worker's Youth League, the youth wing of Norway's Labor Party, was attending an annual gathering.

The shootings came after a bomb explosion outside a government building in Oslo that police confirmed was caused by a car bomb. Sponheim said a witness saw the vehicle standing for a long time outside the building.

Of the 92 people confirmed dead in the twin attacks, 85 were shot and seven died as a result of the blast, Sponheim said. Police said that four or five were known to be missing in the attacks. Sponheim told reporters that body parts had been discovered in the buildings at the epicenter of the explosion.
 ::snipping2::
Police officials said that Breivik did not resist arrest when police caught up with him.
 ::snipping2::
He would not confirm whether authorities were searching for another assailant. It's also unclear whether Breivik was part of a larger network, Sponheim said.

Breivik, who is in custody, was speaking with police, Sponheim said. But he has retained a lawyer.

Norway killings: suspect beckoned young campers to him before shooting them dead
July 23, 2011

Anders Behring Breivik had walked into their camp on Utoya island after taking the short ferry across Tyrifjorden lake.

On the island 650 young people were attending a summer camp where they bathed, sat around campfires and learnt about politics.

Members of the Norwegian Labour party's youth wing, they had heard reports of a bomb explosion in the capital Oslo a couple of hours earlier they found the presence of a police officer reassuring.

But as they came towards him, he pulled a gun out of a bag and opened fire.

As his victims fell to the ground others ran away, screaming in terror. But he followed them, marching around the small wooded island of Utoya in southeast Norway, spraying them with bullets from his two guns and shouting: "You all must die."

Many of his victims were shot twice, according to eyewitnesses. One said the gunman was "laughing and cheering" during his killing spree which lasted for over an hour and left more than 80 people dead. Another said he "shot the cutest girl first".

The terrified campers, aged between 15 and 25, hid in buildings, under rocks and in trees. Some pretended to be dead while others dived into the sea and tried to swim to safety. The gunman went after them, shooting them in the water.
 ::snipping2::
"He kept shouting, 'It's safe to come out. You'll be saved...I'm a cop'," Mr Vereide said. "There were 30-40 of us standing together when he started shooting. but when he was done with us there were only only five or six of us left. We ran away and hid in a cave."
 ::snipping2::
A SWAT team that had been put on alert after the bombing in Oslo was dispatched to the island once the shooting began. But there will be questions about why it took so long to stop the gun spree.

It was unclear why the killing spree was allowed to continue for for 90 minutes despite mobile phone calls and Twitter messages from the 650 young people trapped on the island. It took a Swat team 40 minutes to get there.

“There were problems with transport to Utoya,” chief Sponheim said.

“It was difficult to get a hold of boats, but that problem was solved when the Swat team arrived.

Norway gunman fired for 1.5 hours on island
July 23, 2011

OSLO, Norway — Police arrived at an island massacre about 1.5 hours after a gunman first opened fire, slowed because they didn't have quick access to a helicopter and then couldn't find a boat to make their way to the scene just several hundred yards (meters) offshore. The assailant surrendered when police finally reached him, but 82 people died before that.
 ::snipping2::
A SWAT team was dispatched to the island more than 50 minutes after people vacationing at a campground said they heard shooting across the lake, according to Police Chief Sveinung Sponheim. The drive to the lake took about 20 minutes, and once there, the team took another 20 minutes to find a boat.

Footage filmed from a helicopter that showed the gunman firing into the water added to the impression that police were slow to the scene. They chose to drive, Sponheim said, because their helicopter wasn't on standby.

"There were problems with transport to Utoya," where the youth-wing of Norway's left-leaning Labor Party was holding a retreat, Sponheim said. "It was difficult to get a hold of boats."

At least 85 people were killed on the island, but police said four or five people were still missing.

Divers have been searching the surrounding waters, and Sponheim said the missing may have drowned. Police earlier said there was still an unexploded device on the island, but it later turned out to be fake.

Norway Terror Suspect Released YouTube Video
July 23, 2011

OSLO -- A couple of hours before the devastating bomb blast in Norway's capital, terror suspect Anders Behring Breivik released a video on YouTube where he calls for conservatives to "embrace martyrdom."

TV2 said sources within Norway's police confirmed the video was uploaded by Mr. Breivik, who was charged Saturday for the bombing and shootings in Norway's capital and a nearby island Friday that left at least 92 people dead.
The video was uploaded by a user called AndrewBerwick on YouTube, hours before the bomb in the centre of Oslo went off, TV2 said. It calls for conservatives to "embrace martyrdom."

"[If] the multiculturalist elites of Europe continue to refuse to voluntarily transfer political and military power to our conservative revolutionary forces ... then [the second world war] is likely going to appear as a picnic compared to the coming carnage," the video stated in captions.
 ::snipping2::
The video has since been removed from YouTube.

Norwegian Terror Suspect Has 'Admitted Responsibility' For Attacks, Lawyer Says
July 23, 2011

OSLO –  The Norwegian man accused of launching twin terror attacks in Oslo and at a nearby summer camp for teenagers that left at least 92 dead has "admitted responsibility," his lawyer told Norway's NRK television network Saturday.

Police labeled the attacks as acts of terrorism punishable by up to 21 years in prison according to Norwegian law, the Wall Street Journal reported. Norway does not have the death penalty.
 ::snipping2::
Lippestad Saturday told Norway's NRK television network that his client had "admitted responsibility" for Friday's attacks.

"He explained that it was cruel but that he had to go through with these acts," Lippestad said, according to AFP, adding that the attacks were "apparently planned over a long period of time."

He said his client would explain himself in court Monday when he was arraigned, the BBC reported. The court would determine if police could continue to hold him, the report said.

According to a 1500-page manifesto apparently written by Breivik, he had been planning the operation since at least autumn 2009.

The document -- entitled "2083-A European Declaration of Independence" -- was published on the site www.freak.no describing the author's background and political viewpoints.

It is part diary, part bomb-making manual and part political rant in which Breivik details his Islamophobia, attacks on Marxism and his initiation as a Knight Templar.
Dow Jones reported that several hours before the Oslo car bomb blast in a downtown government quarter, Breivik released a YouTube video calling for conservatives to "embrace martyrdom."
 ::snipping2::
Police chief Sveinung Sponheim told a press conference Saturday that police were investigating unconfirmed witness reports of a second shooter on idyllic Utoya Island, where the gunman, disguised as a policeman, opened fire on terrified teenagers at a summer camp affiliated with the ruling Labour Party.

Sponheim said the suspect was answering questions and the interrogation was likely to continue for several days.

Police official Roger Andresen described him as a "Christian fundamentalist" who was "cooperating" with investigators in an attempt "to explain himself."

Police were also examining the suspect's car and computer records and hope to determine if he was affiliated with an extremist group.

Norway Killing Suspect May Explain Motives
July 24, 2011

Anders Behring Breivik, the man detained for killing 93 people in a Norwegian shooting rampage and bombing, will make his first court appearance today and may shed light on his motives for the attacks.

Breivik will have a custody hearing at Oslo District Court before judge Kim Heger at about 1 p.m. local time and has requested the event be public, court spokeswoman Irene Ramm said by phone yesterday. He will be questioned by the judge and also will be allowed to make a statement, police spokeswoman Trine Dyngeland said yesterday.

Breivik, 32, has confessed to the killings -- the Nordic nation’s deadliest incident since World War II -- while not pleading guilty, Acting Oslo Police Chief Sveinung Sponheim said yesterday.
If convicted on the two counts of Acts of Terror he has been charged with, he could receive a maximum sentence of 21 years in prison, Norway’s toughest punishment.

“It is a possibility, but not likely, that he will spend the rest of his life in prison,” Oslo Police spokeswoman Carol Sandbye said yesterday by phone.

If Breivik were convicted, prosecutors could ask that he be imprisoned longer than 21 years on the ground that he might repeat a violent crime and that a 21-year sentence would not be sufficient to prevent that, Sandbye said. Were that to happen, Breivik would then need to be retried every five, she said.

In diary, Norwegian ‘crusader’ details months of preparation for attacks
July 24, 2011

OSLO — In the minutely detailed diary he began compiling May 1, Anders Behring Breivik comes across as obsessive, anxious and narcissistic. Meticulously recording his actions, he describes how he assembled the explosives he would use to set off a car bomb in Oslo and how he prepared for the shooting spree he would then launch on the island of Utoeya.

For 82 days, he wrote it all down.
 ::snipping2::
Breivik, a 32-year-old who contends he is waging a Christian crusade against multiculturalism in Europe, believes the killings were “gruesome” but “necessary,” said his attorney, Geir Lippestad. Breivik has acknowledged that he carried out the attacks, his lawyer said, but he denies criminal responsibility. Police officials said Sunday that Breivik told them he acted without an accomplice.

His diary is part of a 1,500-page manifesto that Breivik admits posting on the Internet, Lippestad says. Part history, part commentary, part how-to manual, it lays out his loathing of Islam and his determination to preserve a Christian Europe. It is written in English, a language Scandinavians often turn to when trying to reach the broadest possible audience. The Norwegian newspaper VG has reported that sections of it were lifted from the manifesto of Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber.

As of Sunday evening, Breivik’s one-man revolution had left 93 dead and 96 injured, with four still missing. Divers continued to search the waters around the island for bodies.

Norway Princess' Brother Killed in Massacre
July 25, 2011

OSLO, Norway) — Norway's royal court says Crown Princess Mette-Marit's stepbrother, an off-duty police officer, was among the 86 people killed when a gunman opened fire at a youth camp.

Court spokeswoman Marianne Hagen says the victim was Trond Berntsen, the son of Mette-Marit's stepfather, who died in 2008.

Norway Attack Suspect Due in Court
July 25, 2011

Anders Behring Breivik, the man accused of the twin attacks in Norway Friday that killed 93 people, makes his first court appearance today. In a closed-door arraignment, he is expected to explain what motivated him to massacre so many of his fellow countrymen, according to his lawyer.

Judge Kim Heger decided on a closed-door arraignment on a request from police, a spokesman told the Associated Press, denying Breivik the public platform he'd hoped for.

Breivik's attorney, Geir Lippestad, told Norwegian broadcaster NRK that his client had requested to appear at his arraignment in uniform but didn't know what kind, according to the Associated Press.
 ::snipping2::

Prosecutors are expected to request eight weeks of pretrial detention for the suspect while they put their case together.

Meanwhile, the search continues for four people unaccounted for in the shootings at a summer youth camp run by the youth wing of Norway's Labor Party.
 ::snipping2::
On Monday, it was revealed that one of those killed at the island retreat included Crown Princess Mette-Marit's stepbrother, and an off-duty police officer, who worked at the camp as a security guard, the Associated Press reported.
Norway will observe a minute of silence at noon Monday local time for the 93 people killed in the two attacks.

Norway judge: Terror suspect mentioned 'two more cells'
July 25, 2011

The Norwegian judge presiding over the detention hearing for Anders Behring Breivik said on Monday that the he approved the remand extension of the bombing and shooting attack suspect by up to eight weeks, noting that statements made by Breivik "sufficiently proves that the accused acted with the intent of terror."

Also justifying the suspect's continued remand in solitary confinement, the judge said there "is an immediate risk that the accused would tamper with evidence in the case" were he released. The judge also referenced that "the accused has given statements that require further investigation including a statement about 'two more cells in our organization.'"
 ::snipping2::
Prosecutors said they would ask for eight weeks of detention for Breivik at the hearing. That can be extended before trial.

The hearing was closed to the media.

Norway killings: Anders Behring Breivik warns of 'more cells'
July 25, 2011

A judge said Breivik had admitted perpetrating the twin attacks in Oslo and Utoya but had not pleaded guilty, saying that he was defending western Europe from "Muslim takeover" and making the ruling Labour Party pay for "failing" the country.

Judge Kim Heger said he had been charged with terrorism following Friday's attacks which left 93 people dead and ordered that he be held in custody for eight weeks because there was a risk he might "tamper with evidence" if released.

The 32-year-old will be held in solitary confinement until at least August 22 and will be banned from seeing visitors, receiving letters and reading newspapers or watching television for the entire remand period up until September 26.

During the hearing, which was closed to both the public and the media, Breivik warned there were "two more cells in our organisation" that would continue his work.

Breivik's father: I wish my son killed himself
July 25, 2011

The father of Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian who confessed to last Friday's twin terror attacks, said he was ashamed and disgusted by his son's acts and wished he had committed suicide.

Jens David Breivik, a former diplomat who lives in retirement in the south of France, said he first learned of his son's attacks from media websites.

"I couldn't believe my eyes. It was totally paralyzing and I couldn't really understand it," he said.

Breivik's parents divorced in 1980, and his father lived in London while he and his mother lived in Oslo.
 ::snipping2::
"I will have to live with this shame for the rest of my life. People will always link me with him," he said.
 ::snipping2::
On Monday police surrounded the elder Breivik's house in the south of France, to ensure the safety of Breivik after reporters and photographers swarmed to his property.

Norway terror suspect to face second interrogation
July 28, 2011

Oslo, Norway (CNN) -- Police are preparing to interview Anders Behring Breivik, the suspect in last week's terror attacks, for a second time Friday, Oslo police chief Johan Fredriksen said Thursday.

Breivik, who is being kept in solitary confinement at Ila Prison, near Oslo, was last interviewed Saturday, a day after a bomb blast outside government buildings in the Norwegian capital and a mass shooting on the island of Utoya claimed at least 76 lives.

Police attorney Pal-Frederick Hjort Kraby said police had since gained a considerable amount of new information and were ready to question Breivik again at police headquarters. He is likely to face more interrogations in the coming weeks.

Breivik has admitted carrying out the bombing in Oslo, in which eight people died, and the shootings on Utoya, his lawyer and a judge have said.

He currently has contact only with his lawyer and the prison staff who take him food, Kraby said. The investigation is complex and it is likely to be months before Breivik comes to trial, the lawyer added.

Police believe most of the court hearings Breivik attends, such as his first appearance before a judge Monday, will be closed to the public. Kraby said this was in part because of concerns he might send coded messages to others.
