MASS MURDERING FREEMASON BREIVIK CASE IN NORWAY TO COME TO AN END VIDEO
Anders Behrin Breivik, Norways worst mass killer who took the lives of 77 people in July last year, crossed to the island of Utoya by ferry, and while he waited he had a conversation with youth leader Simen Braenden Mortensen. The guilt that comes with knowing what happened next has been difficult for him to bear, but Friday's verdict and sentencing will help. For 10 weeks, the Oslo Courthouse heard extraordinary, harrowing evidence of how Breivik first blew up Oslo's government quarter, then murdered 69 mainly teenagers with chilling remorselessness. Breivik himself gave evidence, not just about the killings, but about his motives. His defence lawyer believes justice will be done.

Breivik case mishandling leads to resignation of Norway's police chief
Independent commission finds that police could have prevented some or all of the attacks that killed 77 people
Norway's police chief has resigned, after an independent commission found that police could have prevented all or part of a bombing and shooting spree by Anders Behring Breivik that killed 77 people.
The far-right militant's bombing of central Oslo and shootings at the ruling Labour party's youth camp shook the country of 5 million people, raising questions about the prevalence of such views.
The commission's report published on Monday concluded that the country's intelligence services and police had made a series of blunders that allowed Breivik to carry out his crimes on 22 July last year unimpeded.
Øystein Mæland, who became head of the police directorate weeks before Breivik's attack, has been criticised for his failure to face up to police shortcomings in the aftermath of Norway's worst peacetime violence.
Mæland, a long-time Labour party politician and the best man at prime minister Jens Stoltenberg's wedding, quit after losing the confidence of justice minister Grete Faremo and other politicians, he told the NTB news agency.
The commission said intelligence services could have learned about Breivik's plans months before the attack when he purchased bomb-making components, and police had enough information to stop him as he made his way from the bombing scene to the youth camp.
Pressure has been mounting on the ruling Labour government since Monday's report. The top-selling newspaper VG called in a front page editorial on Tuesday for Stoltenberg to resign. "The government failed to protect the people because of incompetence," it said. "It would be intolerable if this didn't have personal consequences for the people involved."
Stoltenberg accepted responsibility for the report's findings, saying he would stay on to implement its recommendations. Still, the fallout on him appeared limited, with a poll by public broadcaster NRK showing 72% of voters believed he did not need to resign.
Breivik, whose 10-week trial began in April, will be sentenced on 24 August.
Prosecutors have asked the five judges to declare him insane while Breivik wants to be ruled mentally sound and his attack considered a political statement rather than an act of lunacy.
Breivik – who killed eight people in the bombing and shot dead 69, mostly teenagers, on the island of Utøya – said his victims were fair targets because they were "brainwashed cultural Marxists" whose support for Muslim immigration threatened Norwegian ethnic purity.
If ruled insane, he faces indefinite mental care while if ruled sane, he would be sentenced to 21 years in prison with the possibility of indefinite extensions.

MAN SETS HIMSELF ON FIRE OUTSIDE COURT HEARING FOR MURDERER BREIVIK VIDEO
OSLO -- A man set himself on fire outside an Oslo court hearing the case of Norwegian gunman Anders Behring Breivik on Tuesday.
The man set his sweater on fire, then tried to push his way through fences set up outside the courthouse. He was thrown to the ground by police, who then extinguished the fire by pouring bottles of water on the man.
"The man crossed the street and set himself on fire," Kjell Jan Kvarme, head of police security operations outside the courthouse, told AFP. "Police officers pulled off his clothes and put out the fire."
Norwegian commercial broadcaster TV2 quoted a witness as saying the man had shouted in Swedish, "Shoot me! Shoot me!"
The man is currently being treated at the Ulleval University Hospital in Oslo.

Freemason mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik indicted on terror and murder charges
Norwegian rightwing extremist to face charges over killing of 77 people in Oslo bombing and shooting rampage on island
Norwegian prosecutors on Wednesday indicted Anders Behring Breivik on terror and murder charges for killing 77 people in a bomb and shooting rampage on 22 July 2011 but said the confessed mass killer was unlikely to go to prison for the country's worst peacetime massacre.
Prosecutors said they considered the 33-year-old rightwing extremist to be psychotic and would seek a sentence of involuntary commitment to psychiatric care instead of imprisonment unless new information about his mental health emerged during the trial, due to start in April.
As expected, they charged him under a paragraph in Norway's anti-terror law that refers to violent acts intended to disrupt key government functions or spread fears in the population.
Breivik has confessed to the attacks but denies criminal guilt, portraying the victims as "traitors" for embracing immigration policies he claims will result in an Islamic colonisation of Norway.
Eight people were killed when a bomb exploded in Oslo, and another 69 died in a shooting spree on Utøya island outside the capital, where the youth wing of the governing Labour party was holding its annual summer camp.
Reading from the indictment, prosecutor Inga Bejer Engh said 34 of the victims at Utoya were between 14 and 17 years old, 22 were aged 18-20, six were between 21 and 25 and seven were older than 25.
She said 67 died of gunshot wounds, and two died of fall injuries or drowning. In addition, 33 people were wounded by bullets.
Police spokesman Tore Jo Nielsen told the Norwegian broadcaster NRK that Breivik was totally calm when he was read the charges.
The terror charges carry a maximum penalty of 21 years in prison but prosecutors are working under the assumption that Breivik is legally insane and therefore unfit for prison. However, they said that this assessment could change during the trial.
A second, court-ordered psychiatric evaluation of Breivik is continuing after an initial review, which concluded he was a paranoid schizophrenic, met with widespread criticism. Some experts questioned whether someone with a grave mental illness would be capable of carrying out attacks requiring such meticulous preparation.
Psychiatrists assessing self-confessed Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik have concluded that he is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia.
They believe he was in a psychotic state both during and after the twin attacks on 22 July that led to the deaths of 77 people and injured 151.
Their report must still be reviewed by a panel of forensic psychiatrists.
Breivik will still be tried in April but it seems likely he will be placed in psychiatric care rather than prison.
Breivik admits carrying out the attacks but has pleaded not guilty to charges, arguing that that the attacks were atrocious but necessary for his campaign to defend Europe against a Muslim invasion.
The two psychiatrists who interviewed him on 13 occasions concluded that he lived in his "own delusional universe where all his thoughts and acts are guided by his delusions", prosecutors told reporters.
The 243-page report will be reviewed by a panel from the Norwegian Board of Forensic Medicine.
Breivik, 32, is due to stand trial on 16 April for a hearing scheduled to last around 10 weeks.
"If the final conclusion is that Breivik is insane, we will request that the court in the upcoming legal proceedings pass sentence by which Breivik is subjected to compulsory mental health care," prosecutor Inga Bejer Engh told reporters in Oslo.
She later told the BBC that the trial would be unaffected by the diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia: the only difference was that the prosecution could not ask the judge for a jail sentence.
"It will go as a normal trial as if he had been sane. We will ask him questions and the defence will ask him questions and the judge will ask him questions and he will have his time to talk," she said.
Breivik's defence lawyer, Geir Lippestad, said he was not surprised by the psychiatrists' findings, adding that his client was unlikely to be surprised either.
But the deputy leader of the opposition Progress Party, Per Sandberg, thought the conclusion that Breivik was criminally insane was "completely incomprehensible".
"How can someone who has planned this for such a long time... be considered insane," he told Norwegian TV.
Before the report was made public, a lawyer for the victims said it did not matter what the conclusion was as long as Breivik was not allowed to go free.
"What will happen in the case, no matter what the conclusion, is that he [Breivik] will of course be incarcerated," John Christian Elden said.
"And if the outcome is criminally sane or insane, that is, first and foremost a psychiatric question. The most important thing in our clients' opinion is that he will not be able to walk the streets."
On 22 July, Breivik disguised himself as a police officer to plant a car bomb that exploded close to government offices in the capital Oslo, killing eight people.
Still in uniform, he then drove to the island of Utoeya, where a summer youth camp of Norway's governing Labour Party was being held.
In a shooting spree that lasted more than an hour, he killed 69 people - mostly teenagers.
In a manifesto he published online, Breivik said he was fighting to defend Europe from a Muslim invasion, which was being enabled by what he called "cultural Marxists" in Norway's Labour Party, and the EU.
Liss Goril Anda Journalist, Norway
Norwegians have reacted with surprise and disbelief at the report stating that Breivik is criminally insane.
"I don't see how Behring Breivik's opinions set him apart from war criminals, who are tried in court as if they are sane," said one man.
Hours before the announcement, radio news reports were still saying that such a verdict would be highly unlikely.
The shock is heightened by the media portrayal of Breivik as carefully planning his actions as a functioning member of society. He does not match the public's idea of a paranoid schizophrenic.
Some see the verdict as Norwegian society's attempt to marginalise and silence extreme right-wing opinions. Clearly this would harm open debate concerning these ideas.
Norwegian courts tend to abide by forensic reports.
If people do not see Breivik receive what they consider due punishment, it could reduce public faith in the courts and the Norwegian legal system.
CAUTION WATCH OUT FOR FALSE FLAG - LENDMAN ON OSLO ATTACKS VIDEO
NORWAY'S PREMIER BEGGED PUTIN TO STOP MASSACRE PLANNED BY ELITES
Always be wary of anyone who dresses in robes and regalia. The British Royal family
have been using this ruse for centuries as a facade that masks their evil control network.
Their masonic henchmen are turned out in immaculate garb to fool the public into putting
trust in their vile form of control.
A startling Federal Security Service (FSB) report on the 22 July massacre in Norway states that two-days prior to this catastrophic attack Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg placed an “urgent” call to Putin “begging” Russia’s leader to help stop the events that left nearly 100 innocent civilians dead.
According to the FSB, Stoltenberg first learned of this plot against his country this past Wednesday after reading a “top secret” report prepared for him by the Norwegian Intelligence Service (NIS) on the late March computer attack against Norway’s top military leaders that showed them involved in a conspiracy with Britain’s MI5 Security Service and the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to launch a “two-phase” attack upon Norway modeled after false-flag operations in both Australia and America in the mid-nineties.
The false-flag operations being modeled in Norway were based on the 19 April 1995 bombing attack on the Oklahoma Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building said caused a lone right-wing Christian fundamentalist who used a fertilizer bomb that killed 168, and the 28 April 1996 Port Arthur massacre in Australia where a lone gunman killed 35 mainly because the police failed to show up in a timely manner, and which the aftermath of both attacks caused a fundamental shift away from freedoms and liberties these peoples once enjoyed.
The FSB further reports that this false-flag attack on Norway was a “clear textbook example” of an Operation Northwoods operation designed and prepared by US Military experts. Operation Northwoods was a series of false-flag proposals that originated within the United States government in 1962. The proposals called for the CIA or other operatives, to commit acts of terrorism in US cities and elsewhere in order to influence public opinion and have been used by many Western governments over these past five decades.
FSB experts note in this report that the false-flag attacks on Norway further mirror those of Oklahoma City and Port Arthur in:
1.) A large vehicle holding a powerful fertilizer bomb was able to gain undetected entrance to a protected government centre;
2.) The armed police response to an ongoing massacre of civilians was delayed for reasons still not explained;
3.) A lone suspect has been indentified as the sole perpetrator of the attacks contrary to witness statements that more people were involved;
4.) The lone suspect is denied the right to an open hearing before the public.
This report also notes that within hours of these attacks occurring, a “virtual flood” of information relating to the suspected mastermind of this massacre was released indentifying him as a “blond-haired blue-eyed” Norwegian named Anders Behring Breivik [photo 2nd left] and caricatured as a right-wing Christian fundamentalist. A person which (coincidentally?) the United States had warned barely 24-hours earlier in a video released by their Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was the type of person they feared most would carry out such a terror attack.
The critical problem with the flood of information being released on/or by Breivik, the FSB asserts, is to what is true and what isn’t. This issue was made even more important by American computer experts noting that the Facebook page said belonging to Breivik appears to have been faked, and as they note:
1: Why is there a version of Anders Behring Breivik’s Facebook profile not showing Christian / Conservative? Even Google’s cache of the Facebook profile retrieved on Jul 22, 2011 23:52:36 GMT supports this factor.
2: How was Christian / Conservative added prior to the profile being removed from Facebook? If our PDF was printed out/saved at Jul 23 01:39 GMT, and the profile was deleted soon afterwards by Facebook, how was a detained Anders Behring Breivik able to change it?
3: Which then needs to be asked, Who had access to in changing the Profile before it was removed?
Aside from the “most likely” faked Facebook page, Breivik is, also, said to have posted an astonishingly detailed 1,500-page manifesto and video titled “2083: A European Declaration Of Independence” datelined “London, 2011” on the Internet that claims “the number of Muslims in Western Europe is “reaching critical mass” and there is a core of Cultural Communist elites in Western Europe who really want to destroy Western civilization” and that “Europe will burn again.”
Breivik further said he regarded himself as a successor to the medieval Knights Templar, and claimed to have been recruited at a meeting in London in April 2002, which was hosted by two English extremists and attended by eight people in total. Breivik’s ties with London, and hence MI5, was due to his father being a top economist at the Norwegian Embassy in London where Anders was described as a “mummy’s boy” and “privileged” son of an elite liberal family. [Especially interesting to note about this description of “mummy boy” Breivik is his stating that the main target of his attack was Norway’s “Mother of the Nation” and former Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland.]
The FSB, however, in this report disputes Breivik’s ties with the Knights Templar stating, instead, that this false-flag attack has provided an “ancillary benefit” to the West’s royal and banking elite classes in discrediting this ancient order as “open warfare” between them looms, and as we had detailed in our 21 July report “Murdoch Threat To Expose Obama As “Christ-Child” Ignites Western Fury.”
To the reason(s) behind this attack, this FSB report states, is a “desperate attempt” by British, European Union and American banking interests to force Norway into their “union” [Norway is not a member of the EU] in order to loot their Sovereign Wealth Fund of its estimated $1.5 Trillion in wealth which without the entire Western economy may collapse. Important note, the FSB says, is that what is being done to Norway has already been done to Libya when in what is now called the “Financial Heist of the Century” these same elites launched an unprovoked attack upon this North African nation and promptly looted it of nearly $150 Billion of their Sovereign Wealth Fund in order to sustain their crumpling empire.
Though there is more, much more, contained in this FSB report that we will have to examine further in order to report to you on it accurately upon it. So, and in closing this first report on this tragedy we’ll end with some of the words attributed to Breivik that in light of what this whole issue is being made out to be do, indeed, note us paying attention to them:
“A majority of the people I know support my views, they are just apathetic. They know that there will be a confrontation one day, but they don't care because it will most likely not happen within the next two decades I am a pioneer in this fight, and I have no doubt whatsoever that we will see a political shift in our favor sooner than we might expect. It might look grim at the moment, but we are after all fighting a self-defeating ideology (Cultural Communism that is, not Islam). The only pragmatic approach towards Islam is to isolate it to Muslim countries once we are in a position to do so -- on September 11th, 2083.”
NORWEGIAN FREEMASONS WERE REVEALED ON THE INTERNET IN 2003
Freemasons’ identities revealed on Internet
For the first time, the identities of Norwegian freemasons have been made public.
A Christian newspaper has published the list of names on the Internet.
Many of the freemasons have prominent positions in Norway. One of them is head of public service broadcaster NRK, John G. Bernander. Famous lawyers are also on the list. Next week we will present a list of freemasons from the administration of justice, including judges, magistrates, police officers and lawyers. 550 people from the juridical system are members of the Masonic Lodge and as a result, there are freemasons in a lot of trials in Norway, something that could challenge their qualifications, Vebjørn K. Selbbekk, editor of the magazine Magazinet said.
Mr. Selbekk said the Norwegian Masonic Lodge is a secret fraternity of powerful people and that it is a minimum requirement in a democratic society for the public to know the identities of the freemasons. Magazinet got access to the names by contacting the Masonic Lodge. The newspaper digitalized the list and published it on the Internet. As a result, the traffic on the web pages increased so much they had to extend the capacity of their server.

3.30pm: As many as 84 feared dead as man disguised as police officer opens fire on island
Eyewitnesses say bodies floating in the sea around the island
Undetonated explosives found on Utoya island
The 32-year-old Norwegian man arrested for gunning down children on a holiday island and detonating a car bomb in Oslo has been named locally as Anders Behring Breivik.
Described as 6ft tall and blond, he is reported to have arrived on the island of Utoyadressed as a policeman and opened fire after beckoning several young people over in his native Norwegian tongue.
Reports suggest he was also seen loitering around the site of the bomb blast in Oslo two hours before the island incident.
Authorities now claim 91 people were killed - in Oslo and on Utoya Island, 50 miles north of the capital, it was claimed.
Norwegian police said at least 84 were killed at Utoya alone and described the killings as of 'catastrophic dimensions' and 'the work of a madman'.
It took investigators several hours to begin to realise the full scope of Friday's massacre, which followed an explosion in nearby Oslo that killed seven and that police say was set off by the same suspect.
The mass shootings are among the worst in history. With the blast outside the prime minister's office, they formed the deadliest day of terror in Western Europe since the 2004 Madrid train bombings killed 191.
A police official said the suspect appears to have acted alone in both attacks, and that 'it seems like that this is not linked to any international terrorist organizations at all.
'This seems like a madman's work.'
The Oslo bomb blast was outside a government office, while the island of Utoya is reportedly owned by the Norwegian Labour Party.
Teenagers on the Norwegian holiday island of Utoya had to 'swim for their lives' and hide in trees when the gunman fired indiscriminately at them.
Around 700 had gathered on the island for a meeting of the youth wing of the ruling Labour party.
Witnesses said the man in police uniform who opened fire beckoned several young people over before shooting at them. He told them to 'come here'.
Other witnesses said they heard him saying: 'This is just the beginning.'
It came as Norway succumbed to a double attack in what is being described as the worst atrocity it has faced since the Second World War.
Police landed on the island by helicopter as the shooting continued and sealed off the area but ambulances were unable to reach the scene immediately.
Fredrik Walløe, a London-based Norwegian journalist, tweeted: 'A Sea King helicopter carrying medics has reached the island, but can't land because of continued gunfire.'
Locals were urged to help those fleeing the island.
Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, who had been due to visit the island, told a Norwegian TV channel that the situation was critical.
He said: 'We now have reports of a serious situation there - a critical situation on Utoya.'
Emilie Bersaas, 19, spoke from Utoya last night, from where she could still hear police and helicopters overheard.
She said: 'I'm at a building with the army. I ran here when I heard the shooting. I heard a lot of people running and screaming. I ran to the nearest building and hid under the desk.'
She said there was 'a lot of shooting' and she heard 'screaming from the next room'.
'The shooting came from all different directions,' she added. 'Somebody told me to go under the desk. And put mattresses and pillows on top so I felt kind of safe. It was terrifying.'
She said the shooting was very close to the building and hit it at one point.
'I stayed under the bed for two hours. Then the police smashed the window and came in.'
'It seems so unreal, in Norway this doesn't happen here. It's something that we hear about happening in the U.S.
'It's weird and it's tough and it reminds us of problems that we should have taken more seriously than we have.'
She added: 'I'm worried about my friends on the island. I've talked to some of them. Some of them are hiding in the same building as me but some of them I don’t know where they are.'
The island attack came soon after a massive car blast at a government office block in the capital Oslo, where reports say a man also dressed in police uniform, which could have been the same person, was seen loitering beforehand.
It has not been confirmed if the two incidents were coordinated or the island gunman was acting alone - but Oslo police believe the two incidents may indeed be linked.
Simen Braende Mortensen, a guard on the boat to Utoya Island, told VG newspaper he saw a man, aged between 30 to 40-years-old, in a police uniform and bulletproof vest drive on to the Labour Party-owned boat in a silver van.
He apparently had a pistol and a rifle with telescopic sight, had a Norwegian look and spoke in a common eastern dialect.
It is reported he said he had been sent to beef up security following the Oslo bombing, and was shot and wounded before being arrested. There are reports that he also tried to kill himself, but these have not been confirmed.
Andre Scheie told Norwegian broadcaster NRK he saw between 20 to 25 bodies at the youth camp where a gunman dressed in a police uniform opened fire.
He said he saw bodies on the shore of the Utoya island where the youth wing of the Labour Party was holding a summer camp for hundreds of youths.
He said: 'There are very many dead by the shore ... there are about 20-25 dead.' He also said he saw dead people in the water.
Emilie Bersaas, 19, told Sky News that when the shooting started people started running and screaming.
She hid under her desk for two hours as her building was hit by gunfire.
She said: 'People are very shaken up as we do not know who is fine and who is not. There are a lot of people I do not know anything about.
'It was terrifying - at one point, the shooting was very close to me and hit the building I was in. The people in the next room screamed loudly.'
Some people fled the attack by swimming away from the island, while others locked themselves in buildings.
They were warned not to reveal their location on social media networks, such as Twitter and Facebook, for fear they could be the victims of future attempts.
Victims of the first blast in Oslo were still being treated as news of the second incident filtered through.
Mr Stoltenberg, who was advised by security officials not to reveal his location, told journalists: 'There is a critical situation at Utoya and several ongoing ops as we speak.
'Co-workers have lost their lives today... it's frightening. That's not how we want things in our country.
'But it's important that we don't let ourselves be scared. Because the purpose of that kind of violence is to create fear.'
Also police were this afternoon were investigating reports of a suspicious package at broadcaster TV2 in the capital.
At least 15 people were injured in the initial attack in Oslo. It is known that seven were being treated at Oslo University Hospital.
The tangled wreckage of a car was seen outside one Government building with officers investigating whether it was responsible for the blast and carrying a fertiliser nitrate device.
Fortunately, it was a public holiday and the offices were less busy than during a normal weekday.
Ulrik Fredrik Thyve was finishing work when he heard the bang.
He said: 'The explosion was immense; my office felt like it contracted, expanded, and windows were blown all over the building.
'Dust, smoke, people bleeding everywhere. I walked out and towards ground zero to see if there was anything to do.'
Nick Soubiea, an American-Swedish tourist in Oslo, was less than 100 yards from the explosion and said: 'It was almost in slow motion, like a big wave that almost knocked us off our chairs. It was extremely frightening.
'There were people running down the streets, people crying, everyone on their cell phones calling home.'
'I see that some windows of the VG building and the government headquarters have been broken. Some people covered with blood are lying in the street,' she said.
'It's complete chaos here. The windows are blown out in all the buildings close by.'
Eyewitness Craig Barnes was behind the Government building that was struck.
He told Sky News: 'I'm still shocked, I can't believe it. I've got no words, I'm shaken up. Quite a few people are injured. It has shocked everyone and its a major holiday here. Everyone leaves here for two weeks from today.'
The Mayor of Oslo, Fabian Stang, said he did not believe Norway could have been attacked and initially hoped the explosion in the city had been caused by an accident.
He told Sky News he 'wished he could have been there' so that he could have stood 'in front of the young people and ask the gunman to shoot me instead.'
Foreign Secretary William Hague said the UK stood 'shoulder to shoulder' with Norway.
The statement of support came as diplomats sought to check whether any British nationals were caught up in the carnage.
Mr Hague said: 'I send my deepest condolences to all those who have lost relatives or been injured in today's horrific bomb blast in Oslo.
'Our Embassy stands ready to provide assistance to any British nationals who may have been caught up in the attack.
'We condemn all acts of terrorism. The UK stands shoulder to shoulder with Norway and all our international allies in the face of such atrocities.
'We are committed to work tirelessly with them to combat the threat from terrorism in all its forms.'
U.S. President Barack Obama said the incidents were 'a reminder that the entire international community has a stake in preventing this kind of terror from occurring.'
Heide Bronke, a U.S. State Department spokeswoman, said Washington was monitoring the situation but did not have any word of U.S. casualties.
The attack came just over a year after three men were arrested on suspicion of having links to Al Qaeda and planning to attack targets in Norway.
Violence or the threat of it has already come to the other Nordic states: a botched bomb attack took place in the Swedish capital Stockholm last December and the bomber was killed.
Denmark has received repeated threats after a newspaper published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad in late 2005, angering Muslims worldwide.
The failed December attack in Stockholm was by a Muslim man who grew up in Sweden but said he had been angered by Sweden's involvement in the NATO-led force in Afghanistan and the Prophet Mohammad cartoons.
That attack was followed weeks later by the arrest in Denmark of five men for allegedly planning to attack the newspaper which first ran the Mohammad cartoons.
In July 2010, Norwegian police arrested three men for an alleged plot to organise at least one attack on Norwegian targets and said they were linked to individuals investigated in the United States and Britain.
John Drake, senior risk consultant at London-based consultancy AKE, said: 'It may not be too dissimilar to the terrorist attack in Stockholm in December which saw a car bomb and secondary explosion shortly after in the downtown area.
'That attack was later claimed as a reprisal for Sweden's contribution to the efforts in Afghanistan.'
NATO member Norway has sometimes in the past been threatened by leaders of al Qaeda for its involvement in Afghanistan.
It has also taken part in the NATO bombing of Libya, whose leader Muammar Gaddafi has threatened to strike back in Europe.
Political violence is virtually unknown in a country known for awarding the Nobel Peace Prize and mediating in conflicts, including in the Middle East and Sri Lanka.
David Lea, Western Europe analyst at Control Risks, said: 'There certainly aren't any domestic Norwegian terrorist groups although there have been some Al Qaeda-linked arrests from time to time. They are in Afghanistan and were involved in Libya, but it's far too soon to draw any conclusions.'
