Admitted Norway Killer Says He Trained On Video Games

Posted: Updated:

Oslo, Norway (CNN) -- Anders Behring Breivik, who admits killing 77 people in Norway last summer, said his primary objective in bombing a government building in Oslo was to slay the Norwegian government and its prime minister.

Breivik is on trial on charges of voluntary homicide and committing acts of terror in the July 22 attacks. Eight people died in a bombing in central Oslo and 69 people on nearby Utoya Island.

He used a video game as training for his shooting spree, he testified Thursday at his trial. He played the game "Modern Warfare 2" for practice, he said.

Breivik, who boasts of being an ultranationalist who killed his victims to fight multiculturalism in Norway, also went through a period of playing the game "World of Warcraft" up to 16 hours a day, he testified.

He initially planned to carry out three bomb attacks followed by a "gun-based action," he told the court, but eventually was only able to make enough explosives for one car bomb, which killed eight in central Oslo.

Asked about his intended bombing targets, Breivik said: "The first two were clear: the government quarter and the Labour Party headquarters. The third, I was not sure." click here to read more
