Norway attacker back on island for reconstruction

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.

The man who confessed to killing 69 people at an island youth camp in Norway reconstructed his actions for police in a secret daylong trip back to the crime scene.

Police said they took Anders Breivik back to the island of Utoya Saturday in a special hearing about the July 22 terror attacks.

Breivik is accused of shooting the victims dead on the lake island near Oslo after killing another eight people in the capital with a bomb.

The 32-year-old described the killings in close detail during an eight-hour tour on the island with up to a dozen police, prosecutor Paal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby told a press conference in Oslo.

The special hearing took place amid a tight security operation that aimed to avoid escape attempts by Breivik and protect him against potential avengers.

Breivik walked roughly the same route as the one he took during the shooting spree and explained what happened with as little interference as possible from police, Hjort Kraby said.

The reconstruction was filmed by police and may later be used in court.
