DemocracyNow.org - Norwegian police have widened their investigation into Friday's mass killing after the alleged shooter, Anders Behring Breivik, told a court in Oslo on Monday that he had "two further cells" in his organization. During the hearing, Breivik accepted responsibility for the attacks, but denied charges of terrorism. Norwegian media reports that if he is convicted of crimes against humanity he could receive a 30-year sentence. At least 76 people and were killed and 96 others wounded when Breivik allegedly set off a bomb outside government buildings in Oslo and then opened fire on a Labour Party summer camp for youth activists. Democracy Now! interviews Ali Esbati in Oslo, one of the survivors of the shooting. He was at the camp on Norway's Utoya Island to give a workshop and escaped the shooting by diving into the water. "I saw a young girl ... 18 or 19, who had been shot, but she kept repeating, that, 'If I die here, please remember you are all fantastic and keep up your struggle.'"
