I thought they (the attackers) were exchanging messages but realizing he was alone, I think the scream was actually a battle cry.
Utoeya Island massacre survivor Ingvild Leren Stensrud • Describing what she saw and heard, the day Anders Behring Breivik attacked Oslo and Utoeya, while testifying in the Norwegian killer’s trial. Stenstrud survived the attack, with a gun shot to the left thigh, after being knocked over — and subsequently covered by — the body of another victim. Glenn Martin Waldenstroem, who survived being shot in the face, asked that Breivik be removed from the room before he testified. With Anders gone, Waldenstroem told the court that the killer “looked angry and smiled simultaneously.” source (viafollow)

Judge: Norway mass-shooting suspect not insane, fit for trial
Anders Behring Breivik wasn’t allowed to speak at a hearing Monday, the first public hearing since the July bombing and mass shooting that killed 77 people. The hearing drew more than 500 people. The judge, Torkjel Nesheim, was quick to decide on his sanity (and also noted that he most assuredly acted alone), but would not let him recite a prepared statement for the hearing. ”This was not the main trial where he gets to explain himself,” the judge said. “I did not want to give him the opportunity to use this hearing as a platform for him to express his views.” (Check our Tumbl-Zine for more background on this story.) source

Caught in the crossfire: A text exchange between a mother, Marianne Bremnes, and her daughter Julie, who was caught up in the shooter’s rampage on Utøya Island in Norway on Friday. Julie eventually survived unscathed. A gripping exchange.

Update to last post: Unstable man still out there, but has nothing to do with shooting/bombing suspect Anders Behring Breivik. Norwegian police screwed that one up. Please disregard previous post.

It is clear that there is concrete information that a public hearing with the suspect present could quickly lead to an extraordinary and very difficult situation in terms of the investigation and security.
Judge Kim Heer • Explaining why he chose not to allow the hearing for Norway suspect Anders Behring Breivik to be publicized. To put it simply, we’re 100% behind this idea. Breivik basically did what he did to promote his controversial views, and by closing off the hearing, you prevent those views from getting a voice that carries further. That’s why he wanted to speak in public. He wanted the world to hear what he had to say. A good move on the Norwegian judge’s part all around. source (viafollow)

As Salon’s Glenn Greenwald points out, could you imagine any US politician saying that, ever?

Fascinating thing to say — for any leader.
