UPDATED: Police and army personnel are to blow up the rest of Anders Behring Breivik’s cache of explosives from his rented Hedmark farm.



In what they describe as a “controlled test detonation” in mountainous terrain above the Rena property, authorities say they want to compare the explosive material with remains found from the Oslo bomb.

NRK reports police were hoping the operation, scheduled for 14:00 today, was to remain classified.

Authorities found a second prepared bomb at the farm last month more powerful than the one used in Oslo. Police and the army had previously detonated one cache of stored explosives at the end of July, five days after the attack.

Detectives have visited the property several times in the weeks following Breivik’s arrest, and have made several interesting finds in their searches

The 32-year-old mass murderer has already been questioned as to how he made the bomb, and Breivik may be taken back to the farm for further interrogation in hopes for more clues. Police have already secured DNA evidence and fingerprints, and have taken precautions to guard vital proof from going astray.

Police are sifting through all the evidence in the national and international hunt for any accomplices following Breivik’s own claims, and investigations are expected to take several months.
