Norway opens massacre island to media
Oslo: Norway is allowing journalists onto the island of Utoya where confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik massacred 69 people at a youth camp in July.
Police closed the island, 25 miles (40 kilometres) northwest of the capital, Oslo, after the July 22 attacks when Breivik also exploded a car bomb outside the Prime Minister`s office in central Oslo killing eight people.
Adrian Pracon, a 21-year-old survivor says reopening the island is important so that "people understand what happened there”.
More than 100 journalists and photographers are participating in Monday`s visit to Utoya, a popular recreational centre owned by the ruling Labor Party.
