Norwegian Anders Behring Breivik is in all likelyhood “insane”, his lawyer said after the anti-Islam radical admitted to the bomb and shooting spree in Norway on Friday that killed 76 people.
Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg has said his country will “not be intimidated or threatened” by Friday’s bomb and gun attacks.
He said the violence had been designed to spread panic, but Norwegians would “stand firm in defending our values” – democracy and openness – and that the response would be “more democracy, more openness”. He said he expected people to participate more broadly in politics. [Source: BBC News]
