Oslo: The suspect held over a deadly bomb
attack on Norway`s government headquarters had bought six
tonnes of fertiliser in May, a spokeswoman for a farm inputs
cooperative said on Saturday.
"We sold him six tonnes of fertiliser, which is a
relatively standard order," Oddny Estenstad told AFP, adding
the delivery was made on May 4.
Fertiliser can be used as an ingredient to make bombs.
Estenstad would not give details as to which products
were supplied or say if they could be used to make explosives.
On his Facebook profile, the suspect identified by
Norwegian media as Anders Behring Breivik, a 32-year-old
ethnic Norwegian describes himself as the head of Breivik
Geofarm, an organic farm.
Estenstad described the fertiliser order as "small"
and "usual" for vegetable producers and explained it was
routine for producers to buy fertiliser at this time of year.
After the downtown Oslo bombing, in which seven people
died, the suspect is believed to have taken a ferry to a
nearby island where the ruling Labour party`s youth wing was
holding a summer camp.
Wearing a police uniform, he gathered youths around
him and started shooting, killing at least 84, in the
country`s deadliest tragedy since World War II.
