New video shows Anders Behring Breivik, who has confessed to killing nearly 70 teen campers on an island near Oslo, reenacting the mass shooting for Norwegian police.

Breivik returned to the crime scene on the bucolic island of Utoya over the weekend and retraced his steps while restrained by a leash attached to a body harness and wearing a bulletproof vest. During an eight-hour tour, a dozen police officers followed him as he disembarked from a ferry and then walked the same route he took on July 22, the day of the shooting.

Breivik can be seen in the video raising his arms to show police how he fired at the campers as they tried to escape, shooting some of them in the water as they tried to swim to the mainland. Sixty-nine people died in the Utoya shooting, with another eight killed by a bombing in Oslo earlier the same day.

Prosecutor Paal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby said Breivik was allowed to walk and talk with little interruption in order to jog his memory and yield as much information as possible.

"We were able to [jog] his memory with regard to what happened out there," said the prosecutor. He also said Breivik "was not unmoved" by his return to the crime scene, but did not show remorse.

This weekend, it was also revealed that three teens had tried to stop Breivik's shooting spree by throwing stones at him. Breivik shot and killed one of the boys, but the other two escaped.

Breivik Faces 21 Years in Prison

Breivik, 32, faces 21 years in prison with the possibility of permanent detention for the shooting at the Labor Party summer camp and the bombing of the Prime Minister's office in Oslo. He has admitted both acts.

In a 1,500-page manifesto apparently published by Breivik hours before the attack, Breivik claims to be just one warrior in a widespread crusade against Muslim immigration and integration in Norwegian and European society that will take 60 years to complete. The meticulous manifesto detailed Breivik's years-long preparations for the attack and presents an academic-style argument against what he called multicultural Marxism and Islamic colonization. In it, he says being arrested is all part of the plan. "Your arrest will mark the initiation of the propaganda phase," Breivik writes. "Your trial offers you a stage to the world."

Breivik also mentions a plan to escape prison and execute a "bonus operation."

He has also made two series of demands since his arrest, one group that his lawyer calls practical and the other more bizarre. He has asked for cigarettes and clothes, but also to be made the commander of the Norwegian military and to wear a uniform when he appears in court. He has demanded the complete overthrow of Norwegian and European societies, starting with the resignation of the Norwegian government. When the societies are rebuilt, Breivik said, he wants to play a key role.
