Breivik Takes Stand in Trial

Anders Behring Breivik, the man accused of massacring 77 people, mostly teens, in Norway, took the stand to boast of his attack. “I have carried out the most spectacular and sophisticated attack on Europe since World War II,” Breivik told the court. “These acts are based on goodness, not evil.” He said he would do it all again. He added that he was toning down his remarks out of concern for the victims. The court must decide whether Breivik is criminally insane—there were two contradictory rulings before the trial. If found sane and guilty, he faces 21 years in prison, which could be extended.
