A neo-Nazi linked to Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik has been arrested in southwestern France after his wife bought four rifles, raising suspicions he could turn to violence, according to the Paris prosecutor's office.
Kristian Vikernes, who is also a convicted murderer from Norway, had in the past received a copy of a manifesto from Breivik, the office and media reports said.
