Report: Norway suspect may've had surgery for classic Aryan face

This is an undated image obtained from the Twitter page of Anders Behring Breivik, 32, who was arrested Friday July 22, 2011 in connection to the twin attacks on a youth camp and a government building in Oslo, Norway. Breivik is a suspect in both the shootings and the Oslo explosion Friday.

There are new startling revelations about the man who went on a shooting rampage that killed more than 70 people in Norway.

Officials said Anders Breivik, 33, had a facelift to give him a classic Aryan face, according to The Sunday Telegraph. They reportedly said his look is not common in Norway so he must have had plastic surgery.

Investigators also said it is unlikely Breivik will be able to use an insanity defense because he appeared to be in control of his actions.

By his own account, the 32-year-old Norwegian spent years plotting the attack. On July 22, he set off a car bomb that killed eight people in downtown Oslo's government district, then drove north to a youth camp on Utoya, a small lake island set amid a quiet countryside of pines and spruces.

There, he spent 90 minutes executing 69 people, mostly teenage members of the youth wing of Norway's governing Labor Party.

Breivik, who is being held pending trial, has admitted to the facts of the case, but denies criminal guilt because he believes the massacre was necessary to save Norway and Europe.
