A court in Norway has ruled that Anders Breivik was sane when he killed 77 people in bombing and shooting attacks on July 22, 2011.
Rarely has a moment in a country’s history been as significant and insignificant as the judgment that will be passed on Anders Breivik.
The Canadian pop star is scheduled to perform in the Norwegian capital on 16th and 17th April stoking fears that some students in remote schools would skip midterm exams due to take place at the same time.
Minister Kristin Halvorsen says schools have the right to change dates for midterms exams and that the ministry does not intend to intervene.
CCTV footage of Anders Behring Breivik planting the bomb outside the Norwegian Government buildings that killed eight people has been released by Norwegian broadcaster NRK.
The never seen before footage shows Breivik , wearing a security guard uniform, parking his white van outside the building in central Oslo, and walking away.
Moments later the CCTV cameras record the impact of the explosion as it rips through the buildings, shattering glass on to the streets.
The footage will be aired tomorrow in Norway as part of a documentary.
The prosecution in the Anders Breivik case has decided not to appeal the ruling handed down today.
A press conference is being held following the ruling by a court in Oslo, Norway on Breivik's sanity.
Anders Breivik also apologised to "militant nationalists" for not killing more people during his Norway attacks.
The Norwegian far-right nationalist Anders Breivik is speaking in court near the end of his trial.
Mr Breivik said that in his view the judgement is "illegitimate" but he said he would not appeal because to do so would "legitimise this court".
The judge cut him off mid-sentence as he appealed "to all militant nationalists in Norway and Europe". He gave the nationalist salute, as he has on many previous occasions, before speaking.
Per Anders Langerod, a survivor of the Utoya massacre, says what could be better for Norway than having "more immigrants, more tolerance and more democracy" in response to Anders Breivik's extremist views, which were presented at his trial.
Sofie Toemmeraas Lyshagen survived Anders Breivik's mass killing spree on the island of Utoya.
She says she is looking forward to picking up a Norwegian newspaper without Breivik's photograph in it.
Tore Sinding Beddekal was one of the survivors of the mass killings carried out by Anders Breivik on Utoya island.
He says he is "happy and relieved" following the court's decision to declare Breivik sane and jail him for his crimes.
A lawyer for some of Anders Breivik's victims and their families said their clients were satisfied with the court's decision.
Mette Yvonne Larsen said: "I am pleased, although that's not really the right word, and relieved. This is what we hoped for.
"I have already received many messages from clients telling me this is justice served and they are happy it's over and will never have to see him again."
