From Breivik’s Facebook account, which has since been deleted. Based on postings that appeared on right wing Norwegian site Document.no, Breivik was opposed to Islam specifically and immigration generally. He was not known to be a member of any existing nationalist or hate groups such as the Neo-Nazis. His target appears to have been the Prime Minister of Norway, Jens Stoltenberg, leader of the liberal Labour Party. Stoltenberg’s office was near the blast site and he was scheduled to appear on Utoya Island the day of the shooting. Stoltenberg was not harmed.
From Breivik’s Facebook account, which has since been deleted. Breivik surrendered to police on Utoya Island following his catastrophic shooting spree. He is reportedly cooperating with the investigation. Officials believe Breivik acted alone, but are not ruling out co-conspirators.
The only tweet on Breivik’s Twitter account, a quote from John Stuart Mill, posted six days before his terror attacks.
