Norway Police End Search For Bodies At Island

July 28, 2011

Norwegian police today ended the search for bodies near Utoeya island, where an anti-Islam extremist killed 68 people in a shooting rampage last week.

Anders Behring Breivik admits gunning down members of the ruling Labor Party youth wing on the island shortly after staging a car bomb explosion in downtown Oslo that killed another 8 people on July 22.

Prosecutors have said Breivik will not stand trial until next year. Norwegian police were planning on July 28 to again interrogate the 32-year-old.

A woman from Georgia today was confirmed killed on Utoeya island, one of several foreigners among the attack's 76 victims.
