Norway killer planned more attacks, say police

OSLO, July 30, 2011 (AFP) - Anders Behring Breivik planned more attacks than the bombing and shooting spree that killed 77 people, Norwegian police prosecutor Paal-Frederik Hjort Kraby said Saturday.

“He wanted to do more, that we know. But if he wanted to do that... the same day or (at another time) we don't know for sure,” Hjort Kraby told AFP. Norwegian media reported that the right-wing extremist, who admitted to the July 22 shooting on an island summer camp and a car-bomb blast in Oslo earlier the same day, also wanted to hit the royal palace and the ruling party headquarters.

It is still not clear whether Behring Breivik acted alone or was working with other “cells”, as he claimed following his arrest, though police seem to be favouring the first scenario.
