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.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
