Anders Behring Breivik
Logged onto his computer and inserted a memory stick and pulle dup the Microsoft word document he had
finished formatting late the previous night.
It is now July 22, signed it, sent it to a mailing list made up mainly of his Facebook friends and logged off for
the last time.
Next he carefully drove to Oslo’s central government building and blew it up using a car bomb.
He then drove to the island of Utoya where he shot many young people on a campsite.
In the end 69 people died on the island, some as young as 14.Another 8 were killed by the Oslo bomb.
More than 150 seriously injured.
