Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik changes his name


Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik, who murdered 77 people in 2011, has officially changed his name to Fjotolf Hansen, his lawyer said on Friday.

 

Oeystein Storrvik declined to give Breivik's reasons for adopting Hansen, one of Norway's most common surnames, or the extremely rare Fjotolf, APA reports citing News Europe.

 

"He told me some reasons but I don't want to talk about what he told me," Storrvik told Reuters, confirming Norwegian media reports of the name change.

 

The anti-Muslim far-right extremist killed 77 people in Norway's worst peacetime atrocity in July 2011. He killed eight with a bomb in Oslo and then gunned down 69, many of them teenagers, at a youth meeting of the then-ruling Labour Party.
