    A lawyer hired to represent Anders Behring Breivik, the suspect in the Norway attacks, says his client is probably “insane” and added that he might quit the case if Breivik won’t agree to psychological tests. Geir Lippestad, a member of the Labor Party, which Breivik allegedly targeted with a bomb and shooting, said that while he felt it was important that Breivik get representation so justice could be done, he couldn’t understand why the suspect had chosen him. He also said Breivik had elaborated further on his claims that he was part of a right-wing network with cells elsewhere in Norway and throughout Europe, and had asked about the number of people he killed. Police, meanwhile, detonated a cache of explosives at Breivik's farm, but a police prosecutor declined to say how many explosives were found at the farm.
