Police would have opened fire on Anders Behring Breivik if they had not feared he might be wearing a suicide bomber vest it has been revealed.



After arriving on the island after an hour following engine problems with the police boat, the 32-year-old killer was located and asked him to surrender.

Despite orders to stop, Breivik continued walking towards them and was about to be shot when one of the officers shouted his clothes might contain explosives.  

Breivik was only arrested in a forested area on Utøya after police were satisfied he was not wearing explosives, with his weapon possibly loaded with poisoned ammunition located 15 metres behind him.

At today’s police press conference, Håvard Gåsbakk of Buskerud District Police, said, “What happened next was that one man from the emergency response unit had control of the perpetrator whilst the others immediately administered lifesaving first aid.”
