The Hungarian right wing group "64 Counties" was among the dozens of European radical organizations the Norweigian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik wrote to, Hungarian television channel TV2 reported on Monday.

Laszlo Toroczkai, head of the far-right extremist "64 Counties Youth Movement" in Hungary, publicized the letter sent from his own email address.

Toroczkai said he had only read the letter after Friday's massive bomb attack in central Oslo and subsequent shooting massacre on a nearby island that have left 76 people dead and nearly a hundred wounded.

The letter had not specify the suspect's plan, stressed Toroczkai, but only contained a brief summary of Breivik's ideology and the 1500-page study he had posted on the Internet, which called for a "cleansing of Europe."

While acknowledging that his organization agreed with many points in Brevik's ideology, Toroczkai said he strongly condemned the killings. He did not recall ever having met Brevik personally, he said.

Earlier on Monday Breivik admitted to court the responsibility of Friday's twin attacks, saying they were intended as a message to protect Norway and Europe from "multi-culturalism."

According to his social media profiles and the online manifesto he posted Friday, hours before the attack, Breivik holds extreme right-wing and anti-Muslim views and is a conservative Christian.
