Norway massacre survivors return to scene of death
Utvika: Survivors of the massacre of 69 people at a youth camp on a Norwegian island on Saturday revisited the scene of the killings to grieve their lost
Up to 1,000 survivors and relatives were expected on Utoya island, accompanied by police and medical staff, to face the painful memories of the shooting spree by a right-wing extremist.
Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said he too would visit Utoya, "to take part in their mourning and be there for them (the survivors)."
"I will be there as a friend, as a prime minister," he said.
Anders Behring Breivik has admitted killing 77 people on July 22 when he first detonated a truck bomb outside government offices in the capital, Oslo, and then went on a shooting spree on the island, some 25 miles (40 kilometres)
Breivik denies criminal guilt because he believes the massacre was necessary to save Norway and Europe. He said the attacks were an attempt at cultural revolution, aimed at purging Europe of Muslims and punishing politicians that have embraced multiculturalism.
Yesterday, the Oslo District Court extended Breivik`s
isolation detention by another four weeks saying it still does
not know if he acted alone.
Police said they wanted to keep Breivik in isolation
because they didn`t want him to talk to other inmates,
although they still believe he acted alone.
