Traumatized Norway tries to return to normality

OSLO (Reuters) – A Norwegian cabinet minister will make a symbolic return on Wednesday to her bomb-damaged office as the nation tries to restore some normality after the massacre by a right-winger whose lawyer believes is insane.

Friday’s attacks by Anders Behring Breivik killed 76 and traumatized normally peaceful Norway, which has been struggling to come to terms with his cold-blooded shooting of young people and bomb attack in the heart of Oslo’s government district.

Norwegians grieve, look to future after massacre

OSLO (Reuters) – Norwegians decorated the streets of their capital with flowers Tuesday in a show of national unity as they began to overcome the shock caused by the mass slaughter of young people by a home-grown extremist.

The country remains in mourning for the 76 people killed by anti-Islam zealot Anders Behring Breivik in a cold-blooded island shooting and a huge bomb blast in Oslo last Friday.

Norwegian killer probably insane, his lawyer says

OSLO (Reuters) – The lawyer of a Norwegian who killed at least 76 people in a bombing and a shooting spree said on Tuesday his client appeared to be a madman.

“This whole case indicated that he is insane,” Geir Lippestad said of Anders Behring Breivik, who has confessed to “atrocious but necessary” actions, but denies he is a criminal.

Norway police were “fantastic”: justice minister

OSLO (Reuters) – Norway’s justice minister on Tuesday hailed “fantastic” police work after Anders Behring Breivik killed at least 76 people, setting aside criticisms that police had reacted too slowly to a shooting massacre.

Although Breivik has spoken of “two more cells,” police believe he probably acted alone in Friday’s bombing and shooting attacks, which have united Norwegians in revulsion.

Doubt cast on Norway gunman claim of more cells

OSLO (Reuters) – Norwegian police think gunman Anders Behring Breivik is probably a lone wolf, a view also held by some researchers who cast doubt on his claim that he was working with two other cells.

Breivik, who admitted to carrying out a bomb attack and shooting spree last Friday that killed 76 people, told a court on Monday that two cells of collaborators were in his “Knights Templar” group that aimed to “save” Europe from Muslims.

Brutal attack tests “openness” of Norwegian society

OSLO (Reuters) – Before Friday’s deadly attacks by a Norwegian on a self-styled mission to save European “Christendom” from Islam, it was not uncommon to see Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg taking public transport to work and senior ministers walking in Oslo without bodyguards.

Such openness could now be at an end after Anders Behring Breivik’s devastating car bomb attack on the prime minister’s offices and the slaying of young activists from the ruling Labour party trapped on an island.
