Anders Behring Breivik has returned to the scene of the crime, only this time in a bulletproof vest, on a security leash, and under heavy guard. Norwegian police brought Breivik to Utoya Island, where he spent eight hours walking them through a blow-by-blow narrative of his shooting spree there that killed 69 young people at a political camp. "The suspect showed he wasn't emotionally unaffected by being back at Utoya, but didn't show any remorse," a prosecutor says.

Breivik was able to recall in great detail each shot he fired, and each victim he killed, reports the BBC. "He has been questioned for around 50 hours about this, and he has always been calm, detailed, and collaborative, and that was also the case on Utoya," says the prosecutor. Breivik has admitted he carried out the killings, but has not pleaded guilty. He has told police he aimed to kill the young Labor Party members because they "embraced mutliculturalism," and he believed the attack was necessary to prevent "Muslim domination," reports the Independent.
