Norway psychologist: Breivik ‘horrified by his actions’

Anders Behring Breivik was horrified when he began shooting on 22nd of July, but knew he had a mission, according to a psychologist quoted by Fox News, Friday.



The psychologist, who oversees police interrogations of Breivik and advises the team, said the accused gave shocking details about the terrible massacre of 69 people on Utøya Island.

"He says it was very difficult ... it was horrifying at first on Utøya, the first executions,” said Asbjørn Rachlew, a former homicide detective, to The Times.

Breivik said later that he was pleased that his acts of violence have been successful, however, reports Rachlew.

According to police, blood tests showed that Breivik had taken steroids and other drugs before the attack.

32-year-old Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestand, says his client spared the lives of two people on the island because they seemed too young.

"He believes that the two people were between 14 and 16. I will not go into further details," he told NRK.

Rachlew continues, telling The Times, “Testimony is not our goal. Our goal is to gather information."

"We need professional trust between him and us. While he talks about relevant information, we believe that we do our job. He responds to our open-ended questions. We tell him we need the information to the smallest detail."

Breivik was taken under heavy police guard to Utøya yesterday to reconstruct his actions.
