WASHINGTON — A government official says the admitted Norway killer traveled to New Jersey for a week in 2004.
The official said Anders Behring Breivik visited Newark, N.J., for a week in late July 2004 as a tourist. The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter, spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Norway participates in a U.S. visa-waiver program, and Breivik did not need a visa to travel here.
The FBI has looked into Breivik's U.S. ties, including travel and family, and has not found anything nefarious, though it continues to assist the Norwegians in their investigation.
Breivik admitted bombing the Norwegian capital on July 22 and opening fire on a youth group retreat to save Europe for what he called "Muslim domination," killing 77 people.
