(Newser) – Anders Behring Breivik bought key ingredients for his Oslo bomb on eBay, reports CNN. Using the eBay name "andrewbrei," Breivik bought sulfur powder, a drill press vice, a full-face respirator, and his "hazmat" suit. "EBay and PayPal coordinate regularly with law enforcement around the world, and we are assisting Norwegian law enforcement in their investigation," said the company in a statement. Breivik discusses buying other items on eBay in his 1,500-word manifesto, and investigators have concluded that he might have additional accounts under other names. "Ebay is your friend," Breivik wrote.
