Breivik’s trial has been closely followed by the UK media, with some of the other major broadcasting companies live in Oslo almost all day.
Matthew Price, BBC’s Europe correspondent says Breivik’s appearance on the witness stand tomorrow may not be televised live due to people’s reactions today.
Other Twitter users were left bereft after the 33-year-old admitted that he was a “full-time” War of Warcraft computer gamer.
On the Jeremy Vine lunchtime debate radio show on BBC Radio 2, the public acknowledged the extent to which this was Norway’s biggest trial since WWII.
MrVine tweeted “Lots of people saying @BBCRadio2 that Norway's restraint in dealing with #Breivik is something the UK could learn from.”
London’s Evening Standard newspaper has taken advantage of its status as the capital’s reliable afternoon newspaper by putting a face of Breivik on the front page, captioned “I killed 77 in self-defence.”
The trial continues tomorrow with “a fascinating day two, starting off with Anders Behring Breivik’s statement,” according to The Daily Telegraph.
