The trial of a man accused of killing 77 people in a bomb and gun rampage in Norway last summer is scheduled to begin Monday.
Anders Behring Breivik was charged last month with committing acts of terror and voluntary homicide. He is accused of killing eight people in a bomb attack in Oslo, then going to Utoya Island outside the city and systematically gunning down 69 more people, many of them teens and young adults.
The mass killing on July 22 was the single largest loss of life in Norway since World War II.
Breivik has pleaded not guilty, though he has admitted carrying out the attacks, according to the judge handling his case previously.
Breivik's trial is expected to last up to 10 weeks. If he is convicted, his punishment will be based on the determination of his sanity. It may not be possible for him to receive the maximum punishment if he is deemed insane.FULL STORY
