Confessed Oslo attacker Anders Behring Breivik mentioned journalism conferences that attract droves of reporters and editors from around the globe as major targets for possible attacks to advance his xenophobic, right-wing agenda.
In his 1,500-page manifesto, Breivik called these gatherings “THE MOST attractive targets for large scale shock attacks” of what he deemed “category B traitors.”
The screed, titled 2083 European Declaration of Independence, detailed a potential attack on an annual gathering of journalists in Oslo hosted by SKUP, a volunteer group that promotes investigative and critical journalism in the Norwegian press. Breivik said his goal is to cause “maximum casualties.” He outlined a plan to use explosives to first collapse the conference building, then employ flamethrowers, assault rifles and grenades in “executing survivors of the initial blast(s).”
