Police chief quits after report says Breivik attack could have been prevented

Norway's chief of police has quit following a report which found that police could have prevented all or part of the attacks carried out by Anders Breivik.

A total of 77 people died when right-wing extremist Breivik set off a bomb and then opened fire on a youth political camp last summer.

An independent report into the police response to the attacks, published earlier this week, criticised the slow and disorganised handling of the incident.

Breivik will be sentenced on 24 August.
