A reporter was able to obtain a still image picture, caught on security cameras, of the Norwegian extremist accused of killing 77 people minutes before he detonated a car bomb outside the prime minister’s office on July 22,2011. The surveillance cameras were located at the government headquarters where the terrorist attack took place. The camera caught a picture of Anders Behring Breivik in police uniform with a riot helmet and holding a pistol.
After exploding the car bomb that killed eight people in Oslo’s government district, Breivik drove to the island of Utoya where he went on a shooting spree resulting in the killings of 69 people at a Labor Party youth camp.
The picture was taken by a monitoring camera in the government building. The picture has not yet been released by the Oslo police and it is unclear how it was obtained.
Breivik is being held in isolation, but the actual trial is not expected to begin until some time next year. He had admitted to the killings but denies any criminal guilt because he says the massacre was necessary to save Norway and Europe from Muslims because the government has been liberal in embracing multiculturalism.
