Norway attack suspect returns to scene of shooting
August 15, 2011

(CNN) -- The suspect accused of ambushing a political youth retreat and killing dozens of people in Norway last month returned to the island where the shooting rampage took place as part of a police investigation, authorities said Sunday.

Police said attack suspect Anders Behring Breivik "was not emotionally unmoved," but did not express remorse during his return to Utoya Island Saturday.

"He did not express any regrets about what he had done," Police Prosecutor Pal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby told reporters.

Police said they spent nearly eight hours questioning Breivik and walking with him around the island during a reconstruction of last month's attack.

The Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang published what it said were photos and video images of the reconstruction.

Hjort Kraby said Sunday that the reconstruction was a necessary step in the police investigation, but "had to be conducted in a way not offending the victims and their relatives."

Survivors return to Norway's Utoya Island
August 20, 2011

UTVIKA, Norway (AP) — Survivors of a massacre which claimed the lives of 69 people in Norway last month carried flowers to the site of the killings Saturday, laughter blending with tears as they remembered the joys of an island youth camp that turned into a scene of horror.
 ::snipping2::
Many lit candles and laid handwritten notes in memory of their friends at the sites where they were shot during the summer camp organized by the youth wing of Norway's Labor Party.
 ::snipping2::
Up to 1,000 survivors and relatives were expected on Utoya, accompanied by police and medical staff, to face the painful memories of the shooting spree by a right-wing extremist.
 ::snipping2::
Media were not allowed access to the heavily guarded island where Breivik spent 90 minutes executing the 69 people. Many of the victims were shot in the water as they tried to escape by swimming.

From a distance ferries and a pontoon could be seen shuttling survivors, in bright orange life vests, to the forested island used by the ruling Labor Party for political functions, camping and celebrations.

Memorial service for Norwegian victims
August 22, 2011

FREEDOM IS stronger than fear,” Norway’s King Harald told his nation yesterday, hoping to unite a people shattered by the killing of 77 people last month by an anti-immigration zealot.

The king spoke, often in a trembling voice, at a national ceremony of remembrance for those killed by Anders Behring Breivik, who detonated a car bomb in Oslo and shot young people at a Labour Party camp on Utoeya island outside the capital.

Relatives sobbed when the names of the dead were read out one by one, while pictures of them were projected onto a screen.

“I maintain a belief that freedom is stronger than fear,” said King Harald. “It is good to be together at this time . . . As a father, grandfather and spouse, I can only begin to sense some of the pain you feel. As king of the nation I feel for every one of you.”

Dressed in a black suit and with tears in his eyes, the 74-year-old monarch praised the work of emergency workers and others who helped save lives on July 22nd.

Some 6,700 people attended the Oslo ceremony, including relatives of the victims, survivors, police, firemen and emergency personnel who dealt with the attacks.

Norway Killer in First Public Court Hearing
November 14, 2011

OSLO—The anti-Muslim extremist who confessed to a bombing and shooting massacre that killed 77 people in Norway tried to declare himself a resistance leader Monday at his first public court hearing but was quickly cut off by the judge.
Anders Behring Breivik was escorted by guards into an Oslo courtroom packed with dozens of reporters and spectators, including survivors of his rampage at a youth camp near the capital who were seeing him in person for the first time since the July 22 attack.

"I am a military commander in the Norwegian resistance movement," Mr. Breivik said before the judge interrupted him and told him to stick to the issue at hand—his further detention.

The court extended his custody 12 more weeks until Feb. 6 but decided to gradually lift the restrictions on his media access, visitors and mail. Mr. Breivik is being held pending his trial on terror charges.

At the end of the hearing, the 32-year-old Norwegian asked Judge Torkjel Nesheim if he could address survivors and victims' relatives but was turned down.

Previous court hearings in the case have been closed to the public. At the end of Monday's hearing, the judge lifted a ban on reporting the proceedings.

Investigators say Mr. Breivik set off a fertilizer bomb outside government headquarters on July 22, killing eight people, before heading to an island retreat, where youth sections of Norway's governing Labor Party were holding their annual summer camp.
Disguised as a police officer, he opened fire on scores of panicked youths, shooting some as they fled into the lake. Sixty nine people were killed on Utoya island before Breivik surrendered to a police SWAT team.
 ::snipping2::
Like he did in previous closed hearings, Mr. Breivik on Monday confessed to the attacks but pleaded not guilty to terror charges. Mr. Breivik has denied criminal guilt, saying he was in a state of war to protect Europe from being taken over by Muslim immigrants.

He described his pre-trial detention at the Ila prison in Oslo as "irrational torture."
His defense lawyer, Geir Lippestad, told reporters after the hearing that Mr. Breivik doesn't recognize the authority of the court and demands to be released from prison.

The judge said there were sufficient grounds to keep Mr. Breivik in custody considering the gravity of the crime and the risk that he would interfere with the investigation if released.

Mr. Breivik has been held in isolation since his arrest, without access to media, mail or visitors. The judge said the media ban should be lifted Dec. 12 and the other restrictions on Jan. 9.

An online manifesto attributed to Mr. Breivik sheds light on his choice of targets. In it, he lays out a blueprint for a multi-phase revolution, targeting left-leaning political elites he accuses of destroying their own societies by admitting large numbers of immigrants, especially from Muslim countries.

His actions have been widely condemned, including by the anti-Islamic bloggers and groups that he cited prolifically in the document.
 ::snipping2::
Police prosecutor Paal Hjort Kraby said Mr. Breivik most likely plotted and executed the attacks on his own, but said it cannot be ruled out that he had accomplices.

Norway mass murder suspect is insane, police say
November 29, 2011

(CNN) -- The man accused of killing 77 people in a terrorist rampage that shook Norway last summer is insane and cannot be sentenced to prison or preventive detention, but can be confined to a mental hospital for the rest of his life, police said Tuesday.

Anders Behring Breivik suffers "grandiose delusions" and "believes he is chosen to decide who is to live and who is to die," Prosecutor Svein Holden announced.

Police said psychiatrists had determined that the 32-year-old man was psychotic at the time of the attacks and during 13 interviews experts conducted with him afterward. The doctors also found him to be paranoid and schizophrenic, police said.

The experts reached their conclusions after 36 hours of interviews with Breivik, police said.

‘Breivik can be sent back to prison’
December 2, 2011

Norway’s worst mass murderer since World War II may still wind up in a high-security prison, despite being declared insane this week by court-appointed psychiatrists. The fate of Anders Behring Breivik has dominated Norwegian media all week, and now one of his main prosecutors seems to be easing public fears that he may some day be set free.

ALP honours Norway's true believers
By Naomi Woodley and Sabra Lane

December 2, 2011

There was a brief respite from the lobbying and number counting at the ALP national conference this afternoon, when delegates paused to welcome three members of Norway's Young Labor Party.

Scores of their number were killed in July when gunman Anders Behring Breivik went on a shooting spree at a youth camp outside the Norwegian capital, Oslo.

Today, Prime Minister Julia Gillard presented a condolence book on behalf of their Australian colleagues.

"Treasured souls were lost that day," she said.

"We did not know them as friends the way you did. But we understood them as kindred spirits, what we call in our Australian Labor Party, true believers."

The group's leader, Eskil Pedersen, thanked the delegates for their warm welcome.

Half-Sister Of Norway Killer Interviewed In SD
Elisabeth Griffin, Half-Sister Of Anders Behring Breivik, Interviewed At FBI Headquarters In San Diego

December 5, 2011

SAN DIEGO -- New details are emerging on Monday about top-secret meetings in San Diego to find out what may have triggered a bombing and mass shooting in Norway.
In July, a total of 77 people were killed in a bombing in Oslo and a mass shooting at a youth camp. That brought Norwegian investigators to San Diego to talk to the half-sister of the man who has admitted to the killings.

"The police have been very secretive because she doesn't want to be exposed," said Elin Sorsdhal, a Norwegian television reporter.

Sorsdahl is referring to Elisabeth Breivik Griffin, who is the half-sister of Anders Behring Breivik. Breivik has admitted to being responsible for the attacks.

Suspect in Norway killings faces new sanity test
January 13, 2012

Oslo (CNN) -- The man accused of killing 77 people in Norway last summer will undergo a new psychiatric evaluation, Oslo police said Friday, after an earlier test found him to be insane.

Judge Wenche Elizabeth Arntzen told reporters Friday that the court wanted a second opinion because of the importance of the question to Anders Behring Breivik's trial, due to start in April.

This was not a criticism of the previous report, she said.

Breivik has been assigned two new psychiatrists to carry out the evaluation, Oslo police said.
In November, prosecutors said psychiatrists had determined Breivik was psychotic at the time of the attacks and during 13 interviews experts conducted with him afterward.

The ruling meant he cannot be sentenced to prison or preventive detention, but he can be confined to a mental hospital for the rest of his life, prosecutors said.

Norwegian court rules confessed killer Breivik must undergo second psychiatric evaluation
February 2, 2012

OSLO -- A Norwegian court ruled Thursday that confessed killer Anders Behring Breivik must undergo a second psychiatric evaluation, rejecting his appeal against the order, the VG daily reported.

Breivik, who was controversially found to be insane after admitting responsibility for twin attacks that left 77 people dead, was ordered to take a new psychiatric exam by Oslo district court last month.

The killer appealed the decision, complaining that it was based, in part, on confidential information.

But Oslo's appeals court rejected that argument Thursday meaning Breivik can now be examined by new psychiatrists, according to VG.

French police to interview Norwegian mass murderer Breivik's father
February 15, 2012

French police are to question the father of Norway’s far-right mass murderer, Anders Behring Breivik, after Paris prosecutors agreed to a Norwegian request for help. Former diplomat Jens Breivik lives in southern France
 ::snipping2::
Although he has not seen his son for several years and has not lived with him since he the boy was one year old, Norwegian police believe that his testimony is important in establishing a psychological profile of the mass murderer.

But he has so far refused to return to Norway or go to its embassy in France, so the Paris officials must now seek an interview with him and invite Norwegian observers.

Breivik agrees to new psychiatric evaluation
February 16, 2012

Confessed terrorist Anders Behring Breivik has changed his mind and now says he’ll cooperate with a new psychiatric evaluation of his mental state.

Breivik, who just turned 33, agreed to talk with new court-appointed psychiatrists after Norway’s Supreme Court rejected his appeal of their appointment. It means he now won’t need to be committed for psychiatric evaluation after all.

Breivik’s defense attorney Geir Lippestad told news bureau NTB that his client is now anxious to point out what he contends are errors in an earlier psychiatric evaluation that’s been contested since it determined that Breivik is insane. That would mean he can’t be punished with a prison term.

February 22, 2012

The Labour Party’s youth organization AUF claims it still intends “to take Utøya back” after last summer’s massacre on the island, but it’s decided to cancel this year’s political summer camp. More time is needed to repair and replace facilities where 69 persons were killed and 66 wounded on July 22.

Anders Behring Breivik play to be staged in Oslo
Second production of play based on the manifesto of the Norwegian mass murderer is to be staged in the city where his attack began
February 22, 2012

A controversial play based on the manifesto of Norwegian gunman Anders Behring Breivik is to be staged in the city where his attack began.

Following its premiere in Denmark this August, produced by Café Teatret, a second production of Manifesto 2083 will be staged at the Drama House (Dramatikken Hus) in Oslo. The theatre is less than a kilometre away from the car bomb Breivik planted outside Oslo's government buildings on 22 July last year, which killed eight people, before he travelled to Utøya Island and murdered a further 69 people.

Breivik, whose trial begins in April, has confessed to the killings but denies criminal guilt.

The Drama House's artistic director Kai Johnsen told Agence France-Presse: "Naturally, the problems linked to 22 July have been widely discussed in the public debate for months, but the language used has until now been primarily legalese, journalese and, most recently, psychiatric."

He continued: "I think art is an important voice to understand and decipher the problems [raised by the attacks]."

Terror indictment unveiled in Norway massacre
March 7, 2012

OSLO, Norway (AP) – Norwegian prosecutors on Wednesday indicted Anders Behring Breivik on terror and murder charges for slaying 77 people in a bomb and shooting rampage but said the confessed mass killer likely won't go to prison for the country's worst peacetime massacre.
Prosecutors said they consider the 33-year-old right-wing extremist psychotic and will seek a sentence of involuntary commitment to psychiatric care instead of imprisonment unless new information about his mental health emerges during the trial set to start in April.

As expected, they charged him under a paragraph in Norway's anti-terror law that refers to violent acts intended to disrupt key government functions or spread fears in the population.

Breivik has confessed to the July 22 attacks but denies criminal guilt, portraying the victims as "traitors" for embracing immigration policies he claims will result in an Islamic colonization of Norway.

Eight people were killed when a bomb exploded in downtown Oslo and another 69 people died in a shooting spree on Utoya island outside the capital, where the youth wing of the governing Labor Party was holding its annual summer camp.

Reading from the indictment, prosecutor Inga Bejer Engh said 34 of the victims at Utoya were between 14 and 17 years old, 22 were aged 18-20, six were between 21 and 25 and seven were older than 25.

She said 67 died of gunshot wounds, and two died of fall injuries or drowning. In addition, 33 people were wounded by bullets, but survived.
