Breivik sent back to jail as cell claims investigated

Text size Aa Aa

Anders Behring Breivik has told a court in Norway that his bombing and shooting rampage that killed scores of people was aimed at saving Europe from a Muslim takeover.

Breivik also claimed two more cells existed in the organisation.

Prosecutors have been granted eight week’s grace to investigate the new claims.

The judge ordered that Breivik be kept in custody, in solitary confinement with no access to media and no contact from the outside apart from visits from his solicitor.

The police have now revised the death toll down to 76 from 93. Officers have attributed this to the difficulty of gathering information on the island.
