A killer made in Britain?
BREIVIK’S evidence in court this week reveals his links with Britain.
He claims he formed a Europe-wide right-wing terrorist group – called the Knights Templar – during a meeting in London with other extremists.
And Breivik justified the senseless killings by quoting the infamous “rivers of blood” speech by late Tory MP Enoch Powell (
Breivik told the court: “These preventive attacks prove that Enoch Powell is right and ethnic civil war is beginning.
“He said ‘rivers of blood will flow through our streets’.
“Unfortunately nobody listened to him.”
Throughout his evidence Breivik refused to say clearly if he had acted alone or under orders.
He claimed there are two other terror cells in the Knights Templar, but that they act independently.
Pressed repeatedly on whether anyone ordered or encouraged him to carry out his attacks, Breivik eventually confessed: “I am linked to two others who are independent cells. “So there are three cells.” Breivik again insisted that the Knights Templar were formed at a meeting of several like-minded individuals in London back in 2002.
But the prosecution claim the British-based group are entirely a figment of Breivik’s imagination.
