For more insight on the Norway attacks, we are now joined on the line by Mr. Kristian Harpviken, the director of Peace Research Institute Oslo. Hello, Mr. Harpviken.

Q1: The suspect in the two attacks is said to be a Norwegian named Anders Behring Breivik, a far-right extremist. What do you think his motive was in choosing these two places to attack, and do his actions reflect the rise of right wing extremism in Europe?

Q2: The international community has strongly condemned these attacks. What can the Norwegian government do to prevent such tragedies from happening again?

That was Mr. Kristian Harpviken, director of Peace Research Institute Oslo.
