COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) – The manifesto that the supposed New Zealand shooter published is shorter and "more sloppy" than the one written by a Norwegian right-wing extremist who killed 77 people in 2011, but expresses similar emotions, a Swedish terrorist said Friday.
The Swedish Defense College Magnus Ranstorp says that the shooter is against mass immigration and "to some extent have the same themes as (Anders Behring) Breivik" who sent his 1,500-page manifesto online before performing his deadly attacks.
Ranstorp told Swedish radio on Friday that the New Zealand shooter who killed at least 49 people in two mosques in Christchurch on Friday claims to have "been in contact with Breivik's sympathizers."

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg told NRK that the actor's manifesto "unfortunately gives associations a situation in Norway" that she described as "one of the worst in our time."
On Twitter, Ranstorp noted that the New Zealand shooter claimed he would leave prison after 27 years and resembled himself for the late South African President Nelson Mandela and said he would receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
"Another narcissistic right extremist terrorist who has a distorted fantasy world," wrote Ranstorp.
