Breivik may have filmed massacre on Utöya island
Anders Behring Breivik, the man who has confessed to committing two terrorist attacks on 22 July in Norway, may have filmed his massacre on Utöya island. Austria Presse Agentur (APA) reports that Norwegian police investigator Paal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby has said many survivors of that attack have testified that Breivik had a video camera with him. The assassin also wrote about using a video camera in his manifesto, where he stresses the significance of film documentation.
Hjort Kraby told the Norwegian daily Adresseavisen that police officers have taken several hundred electronic recording devices found on the island into evidence, including cell phones and both still and video cameras. A special team is now sifting through the devices, but no footage has yet been found that clearly shows Breivik, nor has any been found that he himself recorded. Detectives are not ruling out the possibility that a video camera used by him may still turn up.
The island remains closed while the investigation is ongoing. Breivik's attacks cost 77 people their lives, eight of whom died during a bomb explosion in the government quarter of Oslo and 69 of whom were shot dead on Utöya island.
