Breivik Verdict Due Today


A verdict is due out, Friday, in the murder trial of Anders Breivik, charged with murder in the deaths of 77 people in a bombing and shooting attack in Oslo, last summer.

The judges will have to decide if Breivik can be defined as insane and be sent to a closed institution or receive a maximum prison sentence of 21 years. Breivik strongly opposes the insanity ruling.
