Norway suspect arrives in court

2011-07-25 13:24

Oslo – The 32-year-old Norwegian suspected of killing as many as 93 people in a bombing and shooting rampage arrived today in a closed Oslo courtroom for his first remand hearing, state media reported.

News agency NTB said Anders Behring Breivik was to face arraignment, with judge Kim Heger to decide on the prosecutor’s call for him to be placed in detention for eight weeks as the investigation proceeds.

That is double the normal, renewable period.

NTB said the vehicle bringing Behring Breivik into the courthouse arrived through a back entrance, leading to the basement of the building.

People waiting to catch a glimpse of him cried “traitor” and “bloody killer,” the agency said.

Behring Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, came in through the main entrance, having to force a passage through hundreds of journalists waiting since early morning.
