OSLO: Anders Behring Breivik planned more attacks than the bombing and shooting spree that killed 77 people, Norwegian police prosecutor Paal-Frederik Hjort Kraby said on Saturday. “He wanted to do more, that we know. But if he wanted to do that... the same day or (at another time) we don’t know for sure,” Hjort Kraby told AFP. Norwegian media reported that right-wing extremist Behring Breivik, who has claimed responsibility for the attacks, had also planned assaults on the royal palace and the headquarters of the ruling Labour Party. “He has mentioned that he was alone, and that because he was alone the logistics were more difficult...and he’s been telling us that’s why things took more time than he had expected,” he said.
