Breivik's ideas 'shared by many'

Anders Breivik's extreme ideology is shared by many people in Europe, according to a philosopher who took part in online discussions with someone he believes was the Norwegian mass-murderer.

Speaking to John Humphrys, Dr Lars Gule said Breivik's views "did not stand out with a particularly aggressive or violent rhetoric... he was quite mainstream".
