Norway killer 'holding back information', say police


Norwegian police say Anders Breivik has told them again that he acted alone in the attacks that killed 77 people. The killer stayed silent when questioned about potential accomplices, according to a police prosecutor.

“We still think he was alone, but we cannot conclude that,” said Christian Hatlo. “He holds back information, and that worries us.”

Breivik’s lawyer Geir Hippestad has been quoted by a Norwegian newspaper as saying that several people helped him procure material for the attacks during various trips abroad.

The police would not comment, repeating that Breivik had probably acted alone. They are investigating his links and activities in a number of countries.

The prosecutor described Wednesday’s questioning, the third since Breivik’s arrest, as “more confrontational” than the previous sessions.

As Norway continues to grieve, former prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland, who met young people on Utoeya island hours before the attack, has said the day will be remembered as one of the country’s darkest.

Many of the cards, drawings and other tributes to the victims – now cleared from in front of Oslo cathedral – are to be kept in the country’s archives.
