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.
