Stockholm, July 25 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The sole suspect in the Norwegian massacre may have been influenced by the Knights Templar. Anders Behring Breivik has been arrested and he is the main suspect in what has been described as the country’s worst massacre in the time of peace.

Anders used bombs and the gun to end the lives of about 85 people in one of the most peaceful counties in the world. During interrogation, Anders told the police that he expects to spend the remainder of his life in jail.

Investigators have retrieved a 1,500 page manifesto from Anders and initial examination of the content suggest that he was inspired by one Richard to do what he did. It has not been established if Anders is a member of Knights Templar of any other extreme Christian group but his book suggest that he was inspired by their teachings.

The Knights Templar used extreme means to protect Christians to the Holy Land. The group was crushed but it is believed that some people are still part of the group and they use signs for communication.

Norwegian police say Anders has warned that there are other two cells in the country who might also strike. The actual death toll of the massacre is a source of debate in the media.
