Belgian pol shocked to get Norway suspect's email

Belgian pol shocked to get Norway suspect's email

A right-wing Belgian politician says he was shocked to learn he had been sent an email by the suspect behind the Norway shooting massacre and bombing.
The email, with Anders Behring Breivik's 1,500-page manifesto attached, was sent to 1,002 email addresses Friday, about 90 minutes before a blast in Oslo killed at least eight people. Sixty-eight were killed in the shooting.
Tanguy Veys, a member of parliament belonging to the anti-immigration Belgian Vlaams Belang party, was among those who received the email. He said Wednesday he had never met or even heard of Breivik, adding that he "didn't want to be connected with a terrorist act."
Another email address on the list led to a Facebook site ostensibly for an Italian with a fondness for Nazi emblems and firearms.
