Norway suspect member of Nazi web group

STOCKHOLM, July 23, 2011 (AFP) - The suspect in the twin attacks that killed at least 92 people in Norway was a member of a Swedish neo-Nazi Internet forum, a group monitoring far-right activity said Saturday.

"He created a profile in 2009, with a pseudonym that can be traced back to his email address," Mikael Ekman, a researcher with the Stockholm-based Expo foundation, told AFP.

It was not possible however to determine when the suspect, named by Norwegian media as Anders Behring Breivik, was last active on the forum which counts some 22,000 members from across the region, he said.

Nordisk, a web forum founded in 2007, describes itself as a portal on the theme of "the Nordic identity, culture and traditions."

It hosts discussions on "everything from white power music to political strategies to crush democracy," Ekman wrote in an article published Saturday on the Expo magazine's website, adding "the topics discussed are often of a racist nature."

The forum for instance contains threads on the Turner Diaries, a 1978 novel about a violent revolution in the United States which inspired the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, according to Expo.

Nordisk's members range from Swedish members of parliament for the far-right Sweden Democrats party to Nazi leaders, the article explained.

"What unites the members is a critical attitude to the current refugee policy and immigration," it said.

Some contributors to the forum have posted comments inciting violence.

"Cars parked next to high buildings with fertilising powder plus diesel gives nice effects," one anonymous user said in March last year on the forum.

"The buildings go down like the World Trade Center."

"I think it's a bit too bad that people do not see this is a war we must wage," the contributor, who Ekman said was not Behring Breivik, added.

"Those ... in government, who do not live close to or don't have to experience the immigrants' threat in their nice neighbourhoods ... in my world there is no dishonest act one can commit against these monsters," the user wrote.

At least 85 people were killed when a gunman posing as a policeman opened fire at a youth camp hosted by the ruling Labour party's youth wing at an island near Oslo.

Earlier Friday, seven people were killed when a bomb ripped through the government quarter in the Norwegian capital.

Police are holding a 32-year-old, previously unknown to police, over the two attacks.

Local media have named him as Anders Behring Breivik, whose picture on his Facebook page shows a man with longish blonde hair and piercing eyes.

The posting lists his religion as "fundamentalist Christian" and his political opinions lean "to the right", police said.

"He has certain political traits that lean to the right and are anti-Muslim but it is too early to say if that was the motive for his actions," police commissioner Sevinung Sponheim told public television NRK.
