article imageAnders Breivik returns to Utoya Island to reconstruct his crime

By Christopher Bates     Aug 14, 2011 in Crime
Oslo - Following the barbaric killing of 69 people at a youth camp on Utoya Island near Norway, Anders Breivik was taken back to the crime scene to reconstruct the events of July 22.
The island - located near Oslo - was where Breivik committed his second crime of the day, after he had already planted a bomb in Oslo, which killed eight people.
Following an eight hour tour of the island, the 32-year-old described the killings while he was chained up by police officers. He was also wearing a bullet-proof vest.
When speaking at a news conference in Oslo, prosecutor Paal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby said: "The suspect showed he wasn't emotionally unaffected by being back at Utoya....but didn't show any remorse.
"He has been questioned for around 50 hours about this, and he has always been calm, detailed and collaborative, and that was also the case on Utoya."
The entire reconstruction was filmed to be used as evidence in court, and while Breivik was never reluctant to admit his presence on July 22, he still believes the massacre was necessary to "save" Norway and Europe from multiculturalism, according to his lawyer.
If convicted of terrorism charges, the right-wing extremist will face up to 21 years in prison, although an alternative custody arrangement may put him behind bars for life.
