Norway mass killer Anders Breivik wants 'medal of honor' for massacre

Oslo, Tue, 07 Feb 2012 ANI

Oslo, Feb 7 (ANI): Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik, who claimed the lives of 77 people in twin terror strikes in Oslo on July 22, 2011, told a court that he deserves a 'medal of honor' for the bloodshed.


Breivik, a 32-year-old right-wing extremist, reportedly smirked as he appeared in a Norwegian court for a scheduled detention hearing.


He was photographed with both arms raised, which according to his attorney was "some kind of right-wing extremist greeting."


According to ABC News, Breivik then told the judge he should be released from custody and said he deserved the military medal for his work against his country's 'traitors' in the fight against the 'Islamic colonization of Norway.'


He claimed that the terror attacks were "preventative" moves and that he acted in cultural self-defense.


"Ethnic Norwegians will become the minority in 10 years in Oslo," Breivik reportedly said.


Breivik had confessed to setting off a bomb that ripped through Oslo's government district, killing eight people, and then opening fire at the summer camp of the governing Labor Party's youth wing, killing another sixty-nine.


An initial psychiatric evaluation concluded Breivik was criminally insane, meaning he could not be held accountable for his actions, but following a storm of criticism the Oslo District Court appointed two new psychiatrists to provide a second opinion. (ANI)
