Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik, who killed 77 people, most of them children, in 2011 had his human rights violated in prison, a court in Oslo ruled Wednesday. Prison conditions, including solitary confinement, violated part of the European Convention on Human Rights, the court found. “The prohibition of inhuman and degrading treatment represents a fundamental value in a democratic society. This applies no matter what—also in the treatment of terrorists and killers,” Judge Helen Andenaes Sekulic said. The judge also ruled Norway must pay Breivik $40,000 worth of legal costs. Breivik, a self-proclaimed nationalist who has repeatedly given the Nazi salute in court, set off a car bomb in Oslo five years ago before killing dozens of teenagers at a left-wing political summer camp.
