Norway Killing Suspect Ordered Into Isolation for Four Weeks

Anders Behring Breivik, in custody for killing 76 people in a Norwegian shooting rampage and bombing, must spend four weeks in pre-trial detention with no contact with the outside world.

Judge Kim Heger said after a 30-minute closed court hearing that Breivik, 32, can receive no visits, nor send or receive letters for the entire eight-week period he will be detained. Breivik told the hearing that he planted the July 22 bomb in Oslo and killed people at a youth camp on Utoeya island as he sought to inflict the “greatest possible loss” to the ruling Labor party that ran the camp, Heger said.
