The man facing 21 years in jail for carrying out Friday’s twin attack on Norway is due to make his first appearance in court to explain his actions. Prosecutors are set to ask for his trial to be closed to the public and media.
32 year old Anders Behring Breivik has admitted responsibility for a bomb attack in the capital, and a massacre at a youth camp. However he’s denied any criminal guilt. 93 people reportedly lost their lives, but police say that number could be revised downwards.
The bomb in Oslo targeted buildings connected to Norway’s governing Labour Party, and the youth camp on Utoya island was also run by it. Investigative journalist Tony Gosling told RT the case highlights a new brand of terrorism.
