Norway killer Breivik to get press clippings of massacre


Confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik's lawyers will reportedly give him a binder with newspaper articles concerning his July 22 massacre once his media restrictions are lifted tomorrow..

32-year-old Breivik has been denied access to media since he surrendered to police following a bomb and shooting spree that killed 77 people. A court last month decided to relax those restrictions.

Defense lawyer Vibeke Hein Baera told news agency NTB that "we will give him clips from one week at a time."

Breivik claims he's a commander of a resistance movement fighting the spread of Islam in Europe. A psychiatric evaluation found him criminally insane, which if upheld by the courts means he would end up in compulsory psychiatric care instead of prison.
