The 39-year-old man who chatted with Breivik in a discussion forum on the internet in 2005 said that Breivik told him that he went to Africa to buy blood diamonds. There he was threatened with death.
Several of Breivik's close friends also explained that the Breivik told them about the illegal diamond trade and travel to Liberia. The Norwegian Police had previously confirmed Anders Breivik visited a Serbian 'crusader commander' in Monrovia, Liberia. There he reportedly joined the Knights Templar, who 'are planning attacks in Europe'. Police is still investigating the track, but facing challenges in getting information from the authorities in Liberia.
In his manifesto, Breivik mentions Liberia trip. But he claims that the trip was a cover story to hide the trip's real purpose, namely a meeting with a Serb whom Breivik describes as a great war hero who should have killed many Muslims in the battle.
