Court extends Norway killer’s detention, isolation
Question of the Day
OSLO (AP) — A Norwegian court has ruled that confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik must remain in pretrial detention for eight weeks, four of them in solitary confinement.
Judge Anne Margrethe Lund announced the decision after a closed hearing Monday attended by the 32-year-old right-wing extremist.
The ruling means police can continue to hold Mr. Breivik in custody until Nov. 14, when a new detention hearing will be held. The judge said he could be held in isolation until Oct. 17.
Mr. Breivik has confessed to the bombing in downtown Oslo and shooting massacre at a youth camp on Utoya island. Seventy-seven people died in the attacks.
