    About the suspect
    Anders Behring Breivik (born 13 February 1979 in Oslo) is a Norwegian citizen and the self-admitted perpetrator of the 2011 Norway attacks. Police believe he acted alone but have not ruled out the possibility of an accomplice. His anti-multiculturalist and right-wing militant ideologies were outlined in an online 1,516-page manifesto titled, 2083 ĘC A European Declaration of Independence, published the day of the attacks under the pseudonym Andrew Berwick. He has been described by authorities as a right-wing extremist and Christian fundamentalist.
    Backgrounder
    The 2011 Norway attacks were twin attacks against the civilian population, the government and a political summer camp in Norway on 22 July 2011. The first was a bomb explosion in Regjeringskvartalet, the executive government quarter of Oslo, at 15:22 (CEST), outside the office of Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and other government buildings. The explosion killed seven people and injured several others. The second attack occurred less than two hours later at a youth camp organized by the youth organization (AUF) of the Norwegian Labour Party (AP) on the island of Utoeya in Tyrifjorden, Buskerud. At least one armed gunman disguised as a policeman opened fire at the campers, killing at least 86 attendees, including personal friends of Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg.
