Norway bombing and shooting massacre: gunman arrested


Linda Genborg 2011-07-23

32-year-old Anders Behring Breivik has been arrested for the massacre of at least 84 youths at a social democrat summer camp on the island Utøya, and the bombing in downtown Oslo that killed at least seven people. The police expect fatalities to rise.

Anders Behring Breivik has expressed extreme right-wing and anti-Muslim views on the Internet.

In a condolence letter to Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenber, the Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt expresses his deep sympathies.

"Our thoughts are with the families, the victims and those who were injured".

He also writes that Sweden is ready to assist Norway in all possible ways "in this difficult time".

Border controls for people passing through from Norway and a special police unit has been deployed in the Västra Götaland region, following the bombing and shooting massacre in Norway on Friday.

- We observe everyone [who cross the border] and make random checks at five different locations, says Ulf Lörstad, deputy watch commander to GP.

A special police unit has been deployed in Gothenburg to further increase the preparedness in the area. The police have also increased their presence at key areas and buildings in Stockholm. However, the terror threat level in Sweden has not been raised.
