Norwegian mass murderer urges German 'Nazi killer' to 'promote far-right ideology' in letter
Norwegian mass killer Anders Breivik has allegedly sent a letter to a German neo-Nazi terror suspect, urging her to use her forthcoming trial for alleged complicity in racist killings to promote their far-right ideology.
Breivik, who killed 77 people in a bombing and shooting rampage in July last year, wrote to the suspected German terrorist Beate Zschape in May while she was being held for questioning in a Cologne prison.
Zschape, who is charged with complicity in the murders of a policewoman and nine immigrant street vendors, is due to stand trial later this year, the Independent reports.
Der Spiegel magazine revealed that while addressing her as "dear sister Beate" in his letter, Breivik urged her to use her case to canvas her far-right "political motives".
"If you make it clear that you really are a militant nationalist, then you will be seen as a courageous heroine of national resistance who has done and sacrificed everything to stop multiculturalism and the Islamification of Germany," he told her.
According to the paper, Breivik also went out of his way to applaud the murders carried out by the National Socialist Underground (NSU), the terror cell Zschape belonged to.
He, however, claimed his own attack on Norway's "political elite" was more effective than terrorising "minorities" such as immigrants.
