Families of Anders Breivik Victims Visit Norway Attack Site 

KALLESTAD, GORM/AFP/Getty Images(OSLO, Norway) -- Nearly a month after the bombing and shooting horror in Norway, it was a painful day for the loved ones.

Relatives of some of the victims made the sombre journey out to the island where the carnage took place.  Each family, accompanied by an officer, was shown exactly where their loved one died.  

Norway's Director of Health, Bjorn Inge Larsen admitted it was difficult, but added, "In the long run we know that seeing the scene of where these murders were taking place, is actually helpful."

Meanwhile, self-confessed killer Anders Breivik made another brief court appearance in Oslo.  The judge decided to keep him in solitary confinement for at least another month.

For survivor Emilie Bersaas, who ran for her life and narrowly escaped death, Breivik's name is not even spoken.

"I'm not spending time thinking about him.  Mostly I don't want to because I don't think he deserves my thoughts," she said. "I would rather that my friends that are not here today get my thoughts."
