Norwegian terror suspect claims he did not work alone

by

Anders Behring Breivik, the anti-Muslim extremist accused in Friday’s terrorist attacks in Norway, has admitted to killing more than 90 people in the Oslo bombing and Utøya youth camp shootings, but has nonetheless pleaded not guilty. In a closed hearing in Oslo on Monday, Breivik told a judge he was part of a network with two other cells and claimed his attack was was needed in order to “save Norway and Western Europe from cultural Marxism and a Muslim takeover.” Breivik will be held for eight weeks, the first four in complete isolation, while he awaits a trial. Monday’s hearing was closed at the request of the police. There were fears Breivik would use the occasion as a platform for his violent, anti-immigrant views.
