The recent deadly attacks in Norway demonstrate the necessity of the Turkish government’s plans to institute an Internet filtering system in August, Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç said Thursday.

According to Arınç, the confessed perpetrator of the massacre in Norway, Anders Behring Breivik, acquired the know-how to build bombs and use guns through the Internet.

“Now this villain [Brevik] says he learned about how to manufacture a bomb by searching on Google for weeks. Let them [filtering opponents] think once more about whether sites that give practical [instructions] on how to manufacture a bomb, [set] a landmine [or] blow up a bridge have any use for humanity after the deaths of [76] people in Norway,” Arınç said during a commencement ceremony held by the North Aegean Journalists Society in the northwestern province of Balıkesir.
