Czech Indicted for Trying to Copy Breivik

Czech police filed charges, this weekend, against a 29-year-old man who sought to copy Anders Breivik, the Norwegian on trial for the bombing and shooting deaths of 77 people in the Oslo area last summer.

Prosecutors claim the suspect admired Breivik. Czech media say many weapons were found in his Ostrava apartment, including a machine gun, fireworks and other explosives, as well as a device for remote-control detonation. Apparently a police uniform was also found.
