There are reports today that a second person might have been involved in the shooting on the Norwegian island of Utøya that saw more than 80 people killed.
At least one witness has told the media that gunfire was coming from two different directions and that they saw two shooters. However, those reports have to be treated cautiously. In the chaos of Utøya, it would not be hard for confusion to reign.
However, Norwegian police are believed to have made a second arrest in the past few hours. Initially it was reported that this was due to a ‘suspicious phone call’, possibly from someone sympathising with Anders Behring Breivik. It’s possible that this story and the confusion on Utøya have become merged to create the story of a second shooter.
There are unconfirmed reports that the second arrest was a guy at Sundvollen, carrying a knife.
Meanwhile, a Norwegian company has confirmed that Anders Behring Breivik ordered four tons of fertilizer back in May. The company says that this was entirely in line with Brevik being the owner of an organic farming company, and it’s still not clear whether the fertilizer was used in the bomb that was detonated in the centre of Oslo on Friday afternoon.
