Norway bomber bought fertilizer in Poland: officials

WARSAW (Reuters) - The Norwegian man who killed at least 93 people in a bomb attack and shooting rampage bought chemical fertilizer from a Polish company but his purchases were entirely legal, the Polish internal security agency said on Monday.

Earlier, Polish prosecutors said they were questioning the owner of the Polish fertilizer company about his contacts with Anders Behring Breivik.

"According to our experts, the materials bought in Poland were not critical for the construction of the bomb. At this stage, the information and materials we have do not indicate that the relations with the terrorist were anything other than commercial," the deputy head of the ABW agency, Pawel Bialek, told a news conference.

He confirmed that Polish authorities had made no detentions or brought any charges against anybody in Poland in the case.
