The man accused of killing 77 people in Norway last summer will undergo a new psychiatric evaluation, justice officials said Friday, after an earlier test found him to be insane.
Judge Wenche Elizabeth Arntzen told reporters Friday that the court wanted a second opinion because of the importance of the question of his sanity to Anders Behring Breivik's trial, due to start in April.
This was not a criticism of the previous report, she said.
Breivik has been assigned two new psychiatrists to carry out the evaluation, court spokesman Geir Engebretsen told CNN.
The decision follows requests from the families of some of the victims, amid wide public debate in Norway over the initial psychiatric report, he said.FULL STORY
