Norway army personnel reveal today another bomb ready for use was discovered at Anders Behring Breivik’s farm property in Rena.



The device, military sources say to NRK, is between 1,000 and 1,500 kilos and larger than the approximately 950-kilo bomb used on government headquarters on 22 July, killing eight.

Today’s find comes in addition to stored explosives destroyed by police on 27 July, about which officers have released few details.

Meanwhile, Minister of Justice Knut Storberget has demanded preliminary answers from police regarding their much-criticised and slow operation to arrest Breivik after his almost hour-long shooting spree on Utøya.

In the intervening weeks since the massacre of 69 young people, police have been under scrutiny for failing to deploy their helicopter, using substandard transport to reach the island, as well as choice of route.

Despite Breivik having called them at least once to surrender, they also failed to apprehend the gunman after landing at the quayside as instructed, and politicians condemn police for their slow response time.

Breivik, who has been in solitary confinement since 25 July, is due to appear before Oslo District Court for his second remand hearing on Friday behind closed doors.
