OSLO, Norway – The man who has confessed to carrying out a bombing and shooting spree that left 93 people dead in Norway will be held in complete isolation for four weeks after a hearing in which he said his terror network had two other cells.
Anders Behring Breivik pleaded not guilty to one of the deadliest modern mass killings in peacetime, saying he wanted to save Europe and send a strong signal, not to kill as many as possible, Judge Kim Heger said after a closed court hearing.
Breivik could tamper with evidence if released, and will be held for at least another month after the court-ordered solitary confinement, the judge said.
Breivik made clear in an Internet manifesto that he planned to turn his court appearance into theater, preparing a speech for his appearance in court even before launching the attacks, then requesting requested an open hearing in which he would wear a uniform.
The suspect staged the bombing and youth camp rampage as “marketing” for his manifesto calling for a revolution that would rid Europe of Muslims, he said.
Reporters and locals thronged the courthouse on Monday ahead of the hearing for their first glimpse of Breivik since the assault. When one car drove through the crowd, people hit its windows and one person shouted an expletive, believing Breivik was inside.
The hearing ended after about 35 minutes.

Ammunition causes maximum internal injuries
- Breivik claimed he was member of secret Knights Templar society
- Planned to hire ‘two high class whores’ the week before massacre
- Believed women should be home-makers and not go out to work
- Told followers to pretend that they were gay to avoid suspicion
It explains why attractive women must be murdered, hails Vlad the Impaler as a hero – and claims the massacre in Norway is only the beginning of a long war.
This is the astonishingly detailed 1,500-page manifesto published on the internet by Anders Behring Breivik on Friday, hours before he carried out his attacks which would leave at least 93 dead.
The document, named 2083 – A European Declaration of Independence because he believes the war to rescue Europe from multiculturalism will last another 72 years, is published under the anglicised name ‘Andrew Berwick – London, England, 2011′.
