Oslo court extends custody for Norway attacker
An Oslo court Monday ruled that Anders Behring Breivik, accused of carrying out twin attacks in Norway that claimed 77 lives in July, was to remain in custody for a further 12 weeks, DPA reported.
Judge Torkjel Nesheim noted that Breivik had admitted to the attacks, and that the investigation so far had supported that. The judge added that the investigation was "far from concluded."
The court upheld some of the custody restrictions Breivik currently in place, including not being allowed to read newspapers or access news broadcasts on television or radio.
Breivik was to remain in custody until February 6, by which time a new custody hearing would be held, the court ruled.
