'Breivik told us he was a policeman,' say witnesses
Friday 04 May 2012
Witnesses described yesterday how Anders Behring Breivik tricked them into believing he was a policeman on the ferry to Utoya island, where he then killed 69 people.
Jon Olson, captain of the MS Thorbjoern ferry, told Oslo District Court about his "angst and full panic" as he desperately tried to contact police about the attack after his ferry had docked at Utoya. Mr Olson, who lost his partner, Monica Boesei, said neither he nor his crew suspected a uniform-clad Breivik to be anything other than a police officer who had come to inform them about the Oslo attack.
"I don't remember if I saw him shooting Monica, but I think I did," Mr Olson said.
Breivik has admitted to a bombing in Oslo that killed eight people and the subsequent shooting massacre at a youth camp on Utoya. The trial continues.
