    The home of a man suspected of killing 12 people at a Batman movie screening in the US state of Colorado has now been cleared of explosives, police say.

    Robots were initially used at the home of James Holmes in Aurora, but agents still had to enter without setting off any remaining devices.

    Police said the suspect had acted with “calculation and deliberation”, taking ammunition deliveries for months.

    The Arapahoe county coroner has now released the names of the dead.

    Michael Dobersen said all the victims’ deaths were related to gunshot wounds.

    In addition to those killed, 58 people were also hurt in the attack at a Century 16 cinema in Aurora, a suburb of Denver.

    FBI agents and police discovered the home was booby-trapped when they used a camera at the end of a 12-foot pole to look inside.

    Aurora police chief Dan Oates said: “I’ve personally never seen anything like what we’ve found in there.”
