Norway Massacre Suspect Revisits Scene


OSLO, Norway, Aug. 14 (UPI) — The suspect accused of killing 77 people in a bombing and shooting spree in Norway walked through a re-enactment with police near Oslo, his attorney said.

Scores of officers escorted Anders Breivik on a walking tour of the island of Utoya Saturday and recorded his descriptions of what happened July 22 when 69 people were gunned down, Norway News reported.

Before the shooting rampage, a bomb exploded in Oslo, killing eight people.

Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, told the VG daily newspaper his client agreed to walking investigators through the crime scene.

A large contingent of police followed Breivik around for eight hours as a police helicopter hovered above and six police boats ringed the island, the report said.

Breivik was handcuffed, bound with rope and in ankle shackles as he led investigators around the scene where members of a Labor Party youth camp were gunned down.

He has confessed to the bombing and shootings, although a trial date hasn’t been set.
