SECOND HALF: The sequence of events from the bombing to the Utøya killings and injuries were the main focus during the prosecution’s sometimes gruesome remarks following the lunch recess.



Images caught by security cameras were shown of Breivik as he walked away from the government buildings before the bomb exploded.

A video was played that showed his movements, and the names of the eight people killed and nine injured during the explosion were read out.

Breivik drove to Utøya after the detonation in Oslo at 15:17 hrs (CET), firing his first shots on the island at 17:21.

The court was then told of the events that took place in detail including how all the victims were shot and which surgical procedures survivors had to go through.

More victims’ names were once again read to the court as the details of the shooting were discussed. Breivik’s expression changed little since he had shed tears during the broadcast of his film.

A phone call made to the police by a victim was played, the phone call lasted approximately three minutes.

It was 18:00 on 22nd July, 40 minutes after he began shooting, that Breivik first spoke to the police. At 18:24, he rang them a second time before he was arrested at approximately 18:35.
.
It was then the turn of the defence to speak. Oslo District Court was informed that Breivik wants to present a supporting document at the beginning of his testimony tomorrow, and that it will take 30 minutes to read it out.

Breivik has a legal right under Norwegian law to present his case, and it was argued it will also be vital in deciding whether he is indeed sane or not.

The defence then asked the court to allow health experts from Ila and Dikkemark as witnesses. Breivik also wants to be sentenced as mentally sane.

Defence counsels also requested the court that experts from the fields of politics, history, religion and society be allowed to testify. There was also a request that representatives from Left and Right wing oriented circles, minority groups and Labour Party be allowed to speak as witnesses.

In perhaps the second most important moment of the day, including Breivik’s tears, defence counsel Geir Lippestad warned they may ask for a postponement at some stage during the trial.

Arguing that additional documents totaling some 2,000 pages were presented in the late afternoon last Friday and that he had not received the facts today, Mr Lippestad said the extensive amount required analysis and that additional witnesses may have to be called.

The proceedings ended 15:17. Oslo District Court is to reconvene at 09:00 tomorrow.
