Breivik will not appeal against verdict


Norwegian killer Anders Breivik, on trial for killing 77 people during a bomb and shooting attack last July, has said he will not launch an appeal if the court finds him sane.

The right-wing extremist has admitted the massacre, so the trial’s main aim is to assess his mental state. Two previous psychological assessments have reached opposing conclusions.

At the end of Thursday’s proceedings Breivik said: “If I am found sane, I have no grounds to appeal.”
