Norway deports gunman’s German lover
Berlin: A German woman who claimed she was Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik’s lover has been deported from Norway.
The woman is a resident of Stuttgart, but her name was not disclosed. She tried to get into the court building in Oslo where the trial of Breivik started on Monday.
"She wanted to get into the building to see Breivik. She claimed that she is his lover," an Oslo police officer said.
The woman, who said she had flown in from Germany especially to see Breivik, was detained and deported from Norway.
According to reports, a woman from Germany has been writing letters and sending money to Breivik in jail. It was not known whether this was the same woman who was deported.
A Norwegian neo-Nazi on Thursday tried to break into the courtroom where Breivik was standing trial, a police spokesman said.
"He just wanted to see what was going on in the courtroom," the spokesman said, adding that the man did not pose a threat to the process.
During the fourth day of his trial, Breivik said his original plan included three bombings followed by a shooting massacre.
The killer set off a bomb in Oslo on July 22 last year before travelling to a youth camp on Utoya island, where he shot dead 69 people.
He said he planned bombings of Oslo`s government district and the Labour Party`s office and a third target -- perhaps the Norwegian royal palace. The three bombs would be followed by a shooting, if he survived, he told the court.
According to the BBC, Breivik decided against multiple bombs because building just one was "much more difficult than (he) thought".
He told the court he took a "sabbatical" to play World of Warcraft and Modern Warfare. He said he used such games to simulate the police response and the best escape strategy.
When he acquired weapons for his attacks, he turned to Norse mythology to name them.
"The rifle I called Gungnir, which is the name of the magical spear of Odin, which returns after you have thrown it. And the Glock I called Mjoelnir. It is the warrior god Thor`s hammer," the Daily Mail quoted Breivik as saying.
The trial against Breivik began with two professional judges, as well as three lay judges -- local politicians appointed for four-year terms who participate on an equal basis in deciding guilt and sentencing. The key issue to be resolved during the trial, expected to last 10 weeks, is Breivik`s mental state.
