Norway looks inward for answers

The fact that a local carried out the attacks has forced the country to confront the growing anti-immigrant sentiment.



    When reports of the attacks in Norway first broke, many initially concluded that a Muslim group was behind it.

    The revelation that they were carried out by a local, Anders Behring Breivik, has forced the country to look inwards and tackle growing anti-immigration sentiment.

    Breivik himself dabbled in politics as a member of the right-wing Progress Party. But his vision soon became apocalyptic, far beyond the realm of political discourse.
