19 held in probe launched after Norway killings

WARSAW, Poland — A Polish security agency said Wednesday that 19 people have been arrested across the country on suspicion of producing and possessing explosives.

The Internal Security Agency said the arrests were part of a wider investigation into the illegal production and sale of explosives that was launched after Norway asked Poland to investigate people with links to mass killer Anders Behring Breivik, who has confessed to two attacks that killed 77 people in July in Norway.

The agency said the arrests were also the result of an analysis of a manifesto that Breivik had posted on the Internet.

In the summer, Poland was asked to provide information on a man who was mentioned by Breivik as a possible source of substances that could be used in the production of explosives. An investigation revealed that Breivik had bought small quantities of two different chemical substances from an online vendor in Poland.

The vendor, Lukasz Mikus, admitted in August that Breivik ordered at least 50 kilograms (110 pounds) of aluminum powder from his company early this year and appeared to be a legitimate trade representative from a Norwegian company.

The agency did not say Wednesday whether Mikus was among those arrested.

The agency statement said, however, that large quantities of explosives were seized on Tuesday and Wednesday during a search of some 100 homes and houses and dozens of cars and garages across the country. The search was carried out by the agency, police, border guards and firefighters.

A few dozen people, who were obtaining chemicals at a warehouse near the western city of Poznan, are suspected of using the substances to make explosives.

  1. Norway killer says there are 80 militant cells in Europe

    OSLO – Anders Behring Breivik, who has confessed to the bomb and shooting attacks that killed 77 people in Norway in July, says there are up to 80 cells in Europe with militant anti-Islamic ideals like his own, Norwegian investigators said on Thursday.

    Norwegian police said previously that Breivik had said there were two or three cells in Norway, apart from himself, and “several” elsewhere in Europe that shared his plans to stop what they saw as an Islamic invasion of Europe.

    “It’s more like three in Norway and 80 around Europe,” police prosecutor Christian Hatlo told Reuters, adding that Breivik had made the allegation since shortly after his arrest on July 22.

    Hatlo added: “We have not uncovered a single one of them.”

  2. CoE chief: Anti-Muslim feeling on rise in Europe

    The Council of Europe’s secretary general says the anti-Muslim beliefs of confessed Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik are shared by more Europeans than most people would like to believe.

    Thorbjoern Jagland told the AP in an interview Wednesday that only a “very small minority” of like-minded individuals would act on those beliefs as Breivik did. But Jagland said he’s very concerned that xenophobic attitudes _ especially toward Muslims _ are getting worse in Europe.

    Breivik has confessed to killing 77 people in a bomb attack and shooting spree in Norway last July. But he denies criminal guilt, saying he’s in a state of war and believes the massacre was necessary to save Norway and Europe from being overrun by Muslim immigrants.
