Norwegian police response criticised
An investigation into Norwegian police’s response to last year’s mass hate killings by Anders Behring Breivik found there were “unacceptable” delays that could have been avoided.
The group found “large weaknesses” and agreed on six main conclusions, said Alexandra Bech Gjoerv, head of the July 22 Commission, as she handed the report to Norwegian prime minister Jens Stoltenberg in Oslo.
The main findings include that the attack on the premier’s office could have been prevented and that the police could have moved faster to halt the shooting on Utoeya Island. “The time it took is unacceptable,” Ms Gjoerv said. – (Bloomberg)
