A recording of a call made by Anders Behring Breivik to Norwegian police in which he offers to surrender after shooting a number of people on Utøya island has been released.
The audio clip is the first time the public have been able to hear the voice of the rightwing fundamentalist, who killed eight people in a bomb attack in Oslo before going on to shoot dead 69 more on Utøya on 22 July.
The 32-year-old introduces himself as “Commander Anders Breivik of the Norwegian anti-communist resistance movement”. He tells the emergency operator he wants to give himself up but hangs up after being pressed for his mobile number.
After resuming shooting for 20 minutes he makes a second call, telling police: “I completed my operation … so I want to … surrender.” He claims to be a member of the Knights Templar in the call, which is only available as a transcript.
