Norway Police Probe Massacre Suspect’s Claims of More Cells

The man responsible for Norway’s worst post-World War II atrocity signaled he may not have acted alone as police defended their handling of attacks that left 76 people dead.

Anders Behring Breivik began eight weeks of pre-trial detention today after he admitted to a shooting rampage and car bombing intended to inflict the “greatest possible loss” to the ruling Labor Party and halt what he sees as the “Islamization” of Norway and Europe. Police said they may seek to bring the country’s first charge of crimes against humanity against Breivik, with a maximum sentence of 30 years.
