Oslo - Self-confessed mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik said on Wednesday he was confident he would not be committed to psychiatric care for the bomb and shooting attacks that left 77 people dead in Norway last year.

"I think the whole of Norway has seen that I am not irrational," Breivik told his defence attorney Vibeke Hein Baera, adding "I am usually right."

Breivik - who has admitted the attacks but pleaded not guilty and declared his desire to be found accountable - on Wednesday challenged a psychiatric report classifying him as legally insane. The two court-appointed psychiatrists were incompetent and their report also contained "200 lies", Breivik said.

"The person described in that report is not me," Breivik said of the report, published in November 2011.

Breivik's mental health is at the centre of the trial, determining whether he will be remanded in psychiatric care or sent to prison.

Being ordered to psychiatric care is "the worst thing that a political activist can be subjected to", Breivik said. "It delegitimises everything you stand for."

The court ordered a second evaluation after other experts questioned the diagnosis.

The second report, published shortly before the trial opened April 16, found Breivik sane and accountable. But a supervisory panel on Monday said they wanted the psychiatrists to explain whether Breivik, having had access to the first psychiatric report and media reports, could have fooled them.

Both psychiatric teams have been following the proceedings in court, and put questions to him on Wednesday. Their respective reports were to be presented in June at the end of the 10-week trial.

Earlier on Wednesday, several of the survivors of the Oslo bomb that claimed eight lives testified about their injuries and trauma after the bomb where over 200 people were injured.

Photos of the blast scene showing the devastation were also shown.

"People should not expect me to break down," Breivik said. "I have prepared for this for years", he told an attorney representing the victims and bereaved.
