Norway is allowing journalists onto the island of Utoya where confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik massacred 69 people at a youth camp in July.

Police closed the island, 25 miles (40 kilometers) northwest of the capital, Oslo, after the July 22 attacks when Breivik also exploded a car bomb outside the prime minister's office in central Oslo killing eight people.

Adrian Pracon, a 21-year-old survivor says reopening the island is important so that "people understand what happened there." More than 100 journalists and photographers are participating in Monday's visit to Utoya, a popular recreational center owned by the ruling Labor Party.
