Norway’s Prime Minister said ‘a youth paradise turned into hell’ when a gunman dressed as a police officer killed at least 85 people at a summer camp on an island outside Oslo after blowing up a further seven in the capital.

The death toll rose this afternoon after a further body was found on the island. Early this evening police said 4 or 5 people are still unaccounted for on the island.

It has emerged that the man at the centre of the attack is also a member of a Swedish Nazi forum which encourages attacks on government buildings.

The revelations were revealed by Swedish newspaper Expo who claim Anders Breivik is part of ‘Nordisk’ which has 22,000 members and focuses on political terrorism.

The 32-year-old who has been identified as the suspect by Norwegian media is also said to have anti-Muslim viewed.

Police are searching the blond, blue-eyed man’s flat in Oslo and are still searching the surrounding waters, where people fled the attack.

It has also just been revealed that there is a new bomb alert in the capital and police have reportedly sealed off an area called Solli Plass, an area close to the royal palace.

A spokesman for local police has said that police are continuing to search the area surrounding Utoeya island and said that many of the people who tried to escape by swimming to shore are unaccounted for.

It took investigators several hours to realise the full horror of yesterday’s massacre, which followed an explosion in nearby Oslo that killed seven, set off, police said, by the same suspect.

Norway’s King Harald speaks to Prime Minister Stoltenberg with the families of survivors

The Norwegian Prime Minister met survivors and families of victims today. He said the he personally knew several of those killed.

He added: ‘To meet the victims and grieving relatives is deeply affecting me. It’s powerful, and my compassion is limitless. On behalf of our country, we wish to express our greatest sympathy with the victims. The entire nation is behind you.

‘A lot of people have told me that they refuse to be scared and that they want to return to Utoeya as soon as possible. We’re a small country but we feel great solidarity with the victims and the presence of the King and Queen conveys the strong support for the people who have lost friends, children, cousins and other relatives. One of the greatest aspects of this country has been showcased today and we’ll do anything to extend our help and empathy.’

It has also emerged that the suspect bought six tonnes of fertiliser in May.

Farming supply company Felleskjopet in Rena, Hedmark, confirmed that Anders Breivik had placed the order under a company he owned called Breivik Geofarm.

A spokesman confirmed the 32-year-old had access to large amounts of fertilizer and that it wasn’t unusual.

‘These are goods that were delivered on May 4,’ Oddny Estenstad, a spokeswoman at agricultural supply chain Felleskjoepet Agri, told Reuters, without giving the exact type of fertiliser purchased.

‘It was 6 tonnes of fertiliser, which is a small, normal order for a standard agricultural producer. I do not know him or the company, except that it is a company that has contacted us in a normal manner and ordered fertiliser and had it delivered,’ she said.

Police detained a second man today who was accused of carrying a knife outside a hotel where Norway’s prime minister was meeting families of shooting victims.

The man told reporters he was a member of the Labor Party’s youth wing and was carrying a knife ‘because I feel unsafe’.

The country’s media are reporting that Breivik set up a Twitter account few days ago and posted: ‘One person with a belief is equal to 100,000 who have only interests’

Oslo police spokeswoman Carol Sandbye told the BBC: ‘He has been charged with two counts of terrorism. They have just started to interrogate him.’

She said he would have to appear in court within three days.

A police official says the gunman is co-operating. He said: ‘He is clear on the point that he wants to explain himself.’

At least 85 dead in Norway youth camp attack


Premier says ‘my youth paradise’ has turned into ‘hell’; police say suspect’s website indicates he was a right-wing, Christian fundamentalist

OSLO, Norway — A suspected right-wing Christian gunman in police uniform killed at least 85 people in a ferocious attack on a youth summer camp of Norway’s ruling Labour party, hours after a car bomb killed seven in Oslo.

 

Police said the suspect immediately surrendered when told to do so and has confessed, Reuters reported.

Witnesses said the gunman, identified by police as a 32-year-old Norwegian, moved across the small, wooded Utoya holiday island on Friday firing at random as young people scattered in fear.

Police detained the tall, blond suspect, named by local media as Anders Behring Breivik, and charged him for the island killing spree and the Oslo bomb blast.

Norwegian police would neither confirm nor deny if the killer acted alone, but were looking into reports of a second suspect.

Norway’s national news agency, NTB, reported Saturday that witnesses told police two people were involved in the shooting on the island, which lasted for about 90 minutes.

At the time of the massacre, hundreds of children were on the island, aged from 11 or 12 to 18 or 19.

National police Chief Oystein Maeland said the attack had reached “catastrophic dimensions.”

Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, capturing the shock the attacks have caused in this normally quiet nation of 4.8 million, said he had been to the island every summer since 1979, saying “my youth paradise, and now it’s been changed to hell,” according to a simultaneous translation provided by Sky News.

Deputy Police Chief Roger Andresen would not speculate on the man’s motives but told a news conference: “He describes himself as a Christian, leaning toward right-wing Christianity, on his Facebook page.”

Story: Suspect in deadly Norway attacks charge

“As of now we have 84 dead at Utoeya,” Andresen said. “In Oslo, with the explosion and the impact it had, we are not yet sure if that number is final. At Utoeya, the water is still being searched for more victims.”

On Saturday, Stoltenberg, Norway’s King Harald, Queen Sonja and Crown Prince Haakon arrived at a hotel where survivors and family members are staying to attempt to comfort them.

After meeting survivors, Stoltenberg said Norwegian officials were working with foreign intelligence agencies to see if there there was any international involvement in attacks.
