Breivik survivors give testimony

Issue No. 2303

Five survivors of fascist killer Anders Behring Breivik’s rampage gave testimony during his trial in Norway this week.

Frida Holm Skoglund described how she swam for her life from Utoya island, where the massacre took place. At one point she looked back and saw that Breivik had mown down those who had hesitated.

Breivik dressed in a police uniform. Some survivors were wary of the real police when they eventually arrived on the island. “I thought they might come and finish what the other one started,” said Lars Gronnestad.
