The suspect in Norway's twin attacks that killed at least 92 people, 32-year-old Anders Behring Breivik, says the violence had been planned as early as 2009.

He admitted responsibility for the bombing and massacre and said that while the acts had been cruel, he had to go ahead and carry them out.

As harrowing testimony emerged from the summer camp where scores of youngsters were mown down, Norway was struggling to understand how a country famed as a beacon of peace could experience such bloodshed.

It is feared that the death toll could rise as a mini-submarine and scuba divers search the water around Utoeya Island where the shooting took place for four or five people who are still reported missing.
