Breivik-style attack foiled

Czech Republic police have arrested a man who sympathised with Norwegian mass killer Anders Breivik and may have been planning a bomb attack, authorities said at the weekend.

Police swooped on the 29-year-old’s apartment in Ostrava on Aug 10 and found a large stash of weapons, including an automatic weapon, a bomb and other explosive material.

“The components of the explosive device were operational,” Ostrava police chief Radovan Vojta said.

On Jul 22, 2011, Breivik set off a car bomb in Oslo, killing eight people, before gunning down another 69.

Mr Vojta said the suspect used Breivik’s name online.
