Norwegian Supermarket Chain Removes Violent Video Games After Massacre

A large chain of Norwegian supermarkets has removed a selection of video games from its shelves as a sign of respect to the people slaughtered by crazed gunman Anders Behring Breivik.

Many of the games which are part of the voluntary ban were the right-wing murderer's favourites according to his on-line ramblings and include the Call of Duty series, Sniper: Ghost Warrior, Counter-Strike: Source, and World of Warcraft which we can't quite work out.

A spokesman for the supermarket chain Coop Norden said "In light of Friday's horrific events, and out of respect for those affected, we have chosen to remove selected items from our range," according to a report on thinq_

Norwegian media outlets are reporting that other retailers are joining the voluntary ban on games involving rampaging around with a machine gun indiscriminately shooting everything that moves.
