There is a story running on BBC News 24 claiming that we are saying that there is no link between Breivik and the EDL. I have no idea where the BBC got this claim from but it wasn't from us. We know of some links. We've just released this statement to the media.
"The anti-fascist group Searchlight are appalled at the atrocities that occurred on Friday in Norway and have today launched an online book of condolence. Anders Behring Breivik clearly has some links with UK extremist groups and over the next days, weeks and months the details of these will emerge.
Searchlight has found some links between Breivik and the British far right and will be revealing these shortly.
The events in Oslo and Utoeya Island demonstrate how dangerous far right extremism is and that we must all continue to be vigilant in the fight between against extremism of all forms.
"Searchlight welcome the Government's renewed focus on right wing extremism and hope that they and the Police will start to take organisations like the EDL seriously. In particular we urge the authorities to classify the EDL as a far right extremist group, something which it is not doing at present."
Thanks to Nick Lowles at Searchlight/HOPE not Hate
