Norway Braces for Trial of Anders Breivik

Those who survived Norway's worst peacetime massacre on July 22 are bracing for the horror of Utøya island to return when the trial of confessed killer Anders Behring Breivik begins on Monday.

Breivik, a 33-year-old Norwegian, faces terrorism and premeditated murder charges for the bombing in Oslo's government district and the shooting spree at the governing Labor Party's annual youth camp on Utøya. Eight people died in Oslo and 69 were killed on the island, in a lake some 40 kilometers (25 miles) northwest of the Norwegian capital.

This is also a time to remember the families of all of these young folks who were killed on Utøya and those in Oslo's bomb explosion.
