Norwegian investigators interrogate Breivik again


Anders Behring Breivik, the man who has confessed to the Norway massacres, is due to be interrogated by police for a second time today – exactly a week after the bomb attack and shooting spree in which 76 people were killed.

Authorities say that, despite his confession, the trial of the 32-year-old will not take place until next year.

The whole country is still in shock. The Oslo pistol club where Breivik was a member and where he went for target practice has closed its doors temporarily and a number of bomb threats were reported yesterday although they were not considered credible.

Police have so far identified more than 40 of the victims – most of them teenagers on a political summer camp on the island of Utoeya.

Today flags across Norway will fly at half mast in a sign of national mourning and a first funeral is being held.

The search for bodies on the island has now been called off but is continuing in the surrounding lake.

Many victims were shot as they tried to swim to safety.
