Mass murder verdict in Norway

An Oslo court has found Anders Behring Breivik guilty of 'acts of terror' and sentenced the Norwegian to 21 years in prison for his killing spree last year that left 77 people, mostly teenagers, dead.

An Oslo court has found Anders Behring Breivik guilty of 'acts of terror' and sentenced the Norwegian to 21 years in prison for his killing spree last year that left 77 people, mostly teenagers, dead. The court of five judges unanimously agreed that Breivik was sane, bringing to an end a spectacular 10-week trial for attacks that killed eight people in the Norwegian capital and 69 more on the holidy island of Utoya on July 22, 2011.

Norway does not have the death penalty, or life in prison, and instead sentenced Breivik to the maximum prison term of 21 years, with the possibility of incarcerating him indefinitely if he is still considered a threat to society after his jail term expires.
