2012-08-24 08:43

Oslo – An Oslo court has ruled that mass killer Angers Behring Breivik is not insane and has handed down a sentence of 21 years, with a minimum of ten years, reports Sky News.

Breivik’s defence lawyers said today he would accept a prison term but would appeal an insanity ruling.

Breivik wants to be seen as a political terrorist, not a madman.

He has said he believes the government is trying to deflate his anti-Muslim ideology.
