Norwegian police took the self-confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik back to Utøya island on Saturday to stage a reconstruction of his slaughter of 69 people there three weeks ago.
In a photograph of the visit in the VG newspaper, 32-year-old Breivik is shown standing in a shooting position, as if aiming a rifle at someone in the water.
“We were able to animate his memory with regard to what happened out there,” police prosecutor Paal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby told reporters, adding that many new details emerged in the eight-hour journey around the island.
“It was clear the suspect was not unmoved at being back on Utøya, but he did not want to elaborate on it to anyone and there was no expression of regret for his actions,” Kraby said.
