Pedersen was found in the corner of the large hall with the other deceased. He had been shot twice.

Relatives comforted children as pictures were shown to the courtroom, some of which were described by Trond Sandsbråten from Søndre Buskerud police as distressing. At times, members of the public shielded their eyes and turned away.

Breivik looked up at the screen impassively a number of times but largely avoided looking at the images.

Coroners will be covering another 12 reports tomorrow.
