Kristian 'Varg' Vikerens arrested in France
Kristian Vikernes, a Norweigian neo-Nazi musician who spent more than a decade in jail for murdering a fellow band member, was arrested in France Tuesday after authorities believed he was planning a terror attack.
Agence France-Presse reports that Vikernes has ties to Anders Behring Breivik, the man who bombed a building in Oslo in 2011 and opened fire on a youth camp several hours later, killing dozens of teenagers.
Vikernes, 40, spent 15 years in prison after the the 1994 murder of the guitar player in his band, Mayhem.
