This video was released by Norwegian authorities on November, 2012 – almost a year and a half after the bombing in Oslo and massacre on the island of Utøya carried out by Anders Behring Breivik. It’s a CCTV footage which shows 33 year old Anders Breivik planting his car bomb by parking a van with explosives at the entrance of a Government building that also housed the office of the Prime Minister in Oslo. The explosion killed eight people and injured dozens. The prime minister was not in the office at the time. After the explosion, Anders Breivik got into another van and drove to a Labour Party youth camp on the island of Utoya where he gunned down 69 people, most of whom were teenagers.
It was reported that the device Anders Breivik used to blow the building up with weighed nearly a ton. You can see from the video that the guards zoomed the surveillance cameras in on the van. A guard explained that this parking spot is reserved for the Prime Minister or his body guards but they get people parking there without permission all the time and need to chase them away. Anders Breivik was however wearing a uniform of security officers and acted calm and collected which did not make him look suspicious. The guard still zoomed in on the van’s registration number and was about to verify which security company it belonged to but then the van exploded.
Anders Breivik’s total death toll was 77 people. He is currently serving the sentence of 21 years (maximum sentence in Norway) at high security facility Ila prison near Oslo. CCTV video of him planting the van including the video of the explosion is below”
