SUNDVOLLEN, Norway (AP) — A Norwegian newspaper says the man suspected in the bomb blast that tore apart buildings in the heart of Oslo and in a shooting spree at a youth camp bought six tons of artificial fertilizer some 10 weeks before the attacks.

Verdens Gang newspaper cites Oddny Estenstad, a spokeswoman for agricultural material supplier Felleskjopet, who says the products were delivered to the suspect on May 4.

Artificial fertilizer is highly explosive and can be used in homemade bombs.

Estenstad says police were alerted to the purchase after it emerged the man was suspected of the deadly attacks.

Estenstad didn't answer phone calls seeking comment Saturday. In total, 91 people have been confirmed dead in the bombing and shooting massacre.
