• Charge against Mass. backer of Norwegian killer


    WORCESTER (AP) - A Massachusetts man who has written letters of support to a man convicted of setting off a bomb and fatally shooting 77 people in Norway has been charged with making a bomb threat at a Roman Catholic college in central Massachusetts last year.

    A plea of not guilty was entered for Kevin Forts, of Shrewsbury, at his arraignment Tuesday at Worcester District Court.

    The charge stems from literature found at Assumption College on Sept. 23, 2011. Forts later was suspended for public statements he made in support of Anders Behring Breivik's July 2011 attacks. Breivik, a self-described "militant nationalist," was sentenced in Norway in August to at least 21 years in prison.

    Forts was released on his own recognizance and ordered to stay away from the college. The 23-year-old and his attorney did not return calls for comment.
