77 murdered but only 21 years jail sentence for Norwegian mass murderer Breivik; regrets not killing more

Published on Aug 24, 2012 by  READ ON
Norwegian mass murderer Anders Brevik - who admitted killing 77 people, and taunted the court with Nazi salutes - has been declared sane by judges. He's been jailed for the maximum 21 years, for committing the country's worst atrocity since World War 2, with his bombing and gun rampage in Oslo and Utoya island. But, broken down, his sentence equates to just over three months for each of his victims.

Breivik smirked when he heard the verdict. At the end of his sentencing, he apologised to 'militant nationalists' for not killing more people. He's always insisted on his sanity, and that the killings were part of his fight against the 'Islamification of Norway.' EU countries were suffering a rise in far-right activities before the tragedy but, as Tesa Arcilla reports, Breivik's ideas are fuelling even more hatred towards immigrants and Islam.
