A Norwegian prosecutor says investigators increasingly believe the confessed killer of 77 people in last month's attacks planned and committed them on his own.

Prosecutor Christian Hatlo says that after 40 hours of questioning, police are fairly certain Anders Behring Breivik acted alone and that he appears to be telling the truth.

Hatlo told AP on Wednesday that police have been able to verify much of what Breivik told them about the attacks and that they have not discovered "any direct lie, yet."

Breivik detonated a bomb outside government buildings in Oslo on July 22, killing eight, followed by a massacre at a youth camp on an island outside the Norwegian capital, where he shot dead 69 people.
