Norwegian Monster Kills 76 In Island Massacre

Sunday, 24 July 2011

A suspected far right extremist massacred 76 people in a bomb and gun attack in Norway. Most of his victims are teenagers.

The attack which began with a car bomb planted in the central political district of Oslo appears to have been targeted at members of the ruling Labour party, and especially the next generation.

Following the bombing, in which at least 8 people died, the suspect Anders Behring Breivik, is believed to have travelled 20 miles to the wooded island of Utoeya, which was the site of a political summer camp for teenagers and young adults.

Dressed as a policeman he then summoned many of the children to him, before shooting them with what appeared to be a machine gun. As his victims scattered, he scoured the island shooting anyone he could find.

Many victims attempted to flee the island by swimming across the broad waterway to the mainland, and it is feared many may have perished. A victim reported that the weather had been raining so they were struggling with the weight of their clothing.

90 people have died so far between the two attacks, although that number may still rise.

Anders Behring Breivik has admitted both attacks and is being held by Norwegian police.

It is though he had a extreme right wing agenda, and that he may have been a participant in Christian Fundamentalist web sites.

UPDATE (25/7/2011):

The death toll has been revised down to 76, although almost a hundred more are badly injured.

The accused has appeared in court. He made requests to wear a black uniform, and for the hearing to be open, so he could justify himself to the public.

Quite rightly, the judge ruled the court should be closed after police and prosecutors voiced concerns he might try to send coded messages to fellow extremists. He has claimed that there are two further terrorist cells in Norway.

The judge said, "It is clear that there is concrete information that a public hearing with the suspect present could quickly lead to an extraordinary and very difficult situation in terms of the investigation and security."

The bomber and gun man's own father said "He should have killed himself", "I will have to live with the shame for the rest of my life."
