Oslo: The mother of Anders Behring Breivik -- the man who has confessed to killing 77 people in Norway last summer -- claims that as much as half of the information her son has told police is fabricated.

The statements from Breivik's mother were read out in court today as psychiatrists presented a 239-page report about the 33-year old extremist's mental health.

Breivik's mother isn't appearing at his trial because of health-related reasons, and has not been named due to Norwegian privacy rules.

She described how Breivik transformed from a caring son into an aggressive and secretive loner.

She also said that "half of what he's told police is a lie", including exaggerating both his travels and education.
