Norway massacre suspect calls deed necessary: lawyer
OSLO (Reuters) - The man suspected of a gun and bomb attack in Norway has called his deeds atrocious yet necessary, his defense lawyer said on Saturday.
"He has said that he believed the actions were atrocious, but that in his head they were necessary," defense lawyer Geir Lippestad told TV2 news.
Lippestad said his client had said he was willing to explain himself in a court hearing on Monday.
The court will decide at the hearing whether to keep the suspect in detention pending trial.
