Breivik Used Dum-Dum Bullets to Destroy Victims' OrgansWorld | July 25, 2011, Monday // 07:53| views
A screen grab made July 23, 2011 shows an entry on a Twitter page under the account name AndersBBreivik. It reads: “One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100,000 who have only interests.”
Anders Behring Breivik, 32, who has admitted carrying out a massacre on an island youth camp, used dum-dum bullets, designed to disintegrate inside the body and cause maximum internal damage, BBC reported, citing hospital sources.
The dum dum bullets don't explode inside the body but fragment into pieces more quickly than other bullets to cause maximum internal damage to the victims' bodies, doctors explained.
The gunman, who is due to make his first court appearance on Monday, was arrested an estimated 90 minutes after the massacre began. Police say he still had a lot of ammunition.
Breivik deliberately surrendered to police when finally confronted on the tiny island of Utoeya after cold bloodily gunning down 86 youngsters, apparently desperate to attract the public attention and deliver his radical thoughts.
At least four people from the island camp shooting are yet to be found; it is thought some may have drowned after swimming out into the lake to escape the hail of bullets.
