OSLO, Norway (AP) -- A security guard who was in the Norwegian government high-rise struck by a car bomb that killed eight people on July 22 says he had barely focused a security camera on the license plate when the vehicle exploded.
Tor Inge Kristoffersen described the scene in downtown Oslo as a "war zone" as he testified Tuesday in the trial of Anders Behring Breivik, a right-wing extremist who has confessed to the bombing and a subsequent shooting massacre that left 69 dead at a political youth camp.
Kristoffersen, who was working in the basement of the building, says he and a colleague used security cameras to get a closer look at the license plate so that they could find out more about the vehicle.
He says "the moment we had zoomed in on the plate the car exploded."
