Massacre in Norway
The man accused of carrying out mass killings in Norway last week claims he had collaborators. The thirty two year old Norwegian is the alleged perpetrator of a bomb attack in downtown Oslo and a shooting rampage at a summer camp nearby. Eighty six people, many of them children, were killed. Before the attack, the man was known as a right wing extremist. He had ties to other far right groups in Norway and in Europe and espoused a virulent anti-Muslim anti-immigrant ideology. We’ll talk some of the many questions being asked about the man in custody and the possible links to far right radicalism.
