A right-wing zealot Andres Behring Breivik confessed to late Friday's twin attacks which have left around 94 people dead in Norway.
The twin attacks involved a shooting spree at the Utoeya Island and a car bomb in Oslo by the zealot who saw his attack as "atrocious, but necessary" to defeat liberal immigration policies and the spread of Islam", Reuters reported.
Breivik dressed as a policeman went on a 90-minute shooting rampage at a summer camp in Utoeya killing about 86 Labour supporters.
Recent reports have lowered the death count to 76.
Prior to committing the horrendous act Breivik had posted a 1,500 page manifesto stating his beliefs.
And while the world has been shocked by the act Norway continues to mourn its victims.
