Breivik's emails published in new book in Norway
OSLO (AFP) - A Norwegian publisher on Monday released a book of some of Anders Behring Breivik's email correspondence that show how he prepared for his July 2011 attacks that left 77 people dead.
The correspondence supports an Oslo court verdict last month that presumed Breivik sane, the book's author Kjetil Stormark said.
Mr Stormark, a journalist who has already published a book on the attacks that shook the Scandinavian nation, has gone through more than 7,000 emails from four accounts used by the 33-year-old rightwing extremist before the massacre.
"The messages don't give a complete image (of Breivik), but show how patient and empathetic he seems in certain situations," Mr Stormark told reporters. Those traits suggest Breivik is sane and the Oslo court "made the right decision" when it found him of sound mind and sentenced him to prison rather than closed psychiatric care, he said.
