Day four of the trial of Anders Breivik who killed 77 people and injured more is under way April 19, 2012. Far from showing any remorse Breivik has continued to maintain that he would do it all again. For him there are only two possible outcomes from this trial. One is that he is acquitted and the other is death. With no death penalty in Norway and no doubt that he was guilty of the murders neither outcomes seem likely.
On the stand today Breivik has been recalling the killing of 69 people on the island of Utoya. He claims that he had hoped to kill all of those present. He went on to say that he wanted to frighten the survivors to take to the water and drown.
One woman in particular on the island was a wanted person by Breivik. This was the former prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland, who Breivik wanted to kill. The killing would have been caught on video by Anders and posted online. He planned to behead her in what he called an execution
Day four has involved details of Breivik's plans being revealed. The statements have resulted in people openly weeping in the court. A break was taken for people to be able to compose themselves.
The trial continues.
