Terrorist Attacks in Norway Remain a Mystery

Oslo, Jul 29 (Prensa Latina) A week after the double terrorist attack that killed 76 people a week ago, questions grew over whether the self-confessed murderer acted alone or with a terrorist groups.

Anders Behrin Breivik, a Norwegian citizen with right-wing extremist and fundamentalist views, confessed to blowing up a car bomb in downtown Oslo and a massacre of young people on the island of Utoya on July 22.

After being arrested by the police, Breivik said he had acted alone, but in his first statement before a judge, he said he acted in complicity with two terrorist cells.

This is one of the mysteries that authorities will try to unravel when the defendant appears in court for the second time.

There was no evidence yet to prove that Breivik had accomplices, or about the terrorist cells mentioned by him, said Janne Kristiansen, head of the Norwegian secret service.

Despite statements by Norwegian authorities, the European Police Office (EUROPOL) set up a working group with experts from various countries to analyze the threat of right-win extremists in Europe.

According to authorities, the self-confessed mastermind of the Oslo and Utoya terrorist attacks will not be tried until 2012, when he will be judged for each of 76 murders.
