Text size Aa Aa

As the funerals of the victims of Norway’s massacres get underway, police say they do not think the country is at increased risk.

They believe Anders Behring Breivik planned and carried out the killings alone.

And they have described the bombing and shooting as “unique both in a national and international contect”.

Breivik, who has confessed to the July 22 attacks, was interrogated for a second time yesterday.

According to his lawyer, he is calm and says the killings were a necessary act in a war against Muslim rule.

The number of people shot dead at a political summer camp on the island of Utoeya has now been raised by one to 69.

A further eight people died in a bomb blast in the Norweigan capital, Oslo, some 45 kilometres away.
