Teenage hackers claim to have gained access to the email correspondence of Anders Behring Breivik, the perpetrator of the Norway massacre several weeks ago, The Daily Telegraph is reporting.
The local group, led by a 17-year-old named Frederik, said it obtained access to two email accounts used by the Breivik and uncovered details about his contacts and private life.
The group said it passed the information to Norwegian freelance journalist Kjetil Stormark, who handed it to police for their investigation of the killing last month of 77 people in bomb and shooting attacks.
Stormark told The Daily Telegraph, “The mails show some of the activity and contacts made by the perpetrator in the weeks and months leading up to the terror attacks. They also tell a tale about his private life.”
He did not provide further details.
Police are investigating 32-year-old Breivik’s claims that he was acting as part of an international anti-Islamic terrorist organization.
Prosecutor Christian Hatlo said this week that after 40 hours of questioning, police are fairly certain he acted alone. Hatlo told The Daily Telegraph police have questioned Breivik’s sister in Los Angeles and examined his computer and mobile telephone records, but have found little evidence of contact with other right-wing extremists who may have helped or influenced him.
