Lawyer: Norway terror suspect will ‘explain himself’ Monday
Sunday, July 24, 2011
Oslo, Norway (CNN) — The suspect in the bombing and mass shooting in Norway believed the terrorist attacks were “horrible,” but “in his head (they) were necessary,” a man who identified himself as the suspect’s lawyer told Norwegian broadcaster TV2.
Geir Lippestad told TV2 late Saturday that he represented Anders Behring Breivik, who was arrested Friday after twin terror attacks that left at least 92 dead.
Breivik “is ready to explain himself” in a court hearing Monday, Lippestad said.
While they have only arrested one suspect, police in Norway have not ruled out the possibility that someone else may have been involved in the explosion in Oslo and a shooting at a youth camp on Utoya island.
