Has Norway's security changed since Breivik attacks?

Norway's justice department is examining the lessons that can be learned from the case and trial of Anders Behring Breivik.

Seventy-seven people died when Breivik set off a car bomb and went on a shooting spree in 2011.

On the first day of his trial, Breivik told the court he "acknowledged" the acts, but said he did not accept criminal responsibility.

Justice minister Grete Faremo told the BBC's Jon Sopel that the country took great pride in being "an open and democratic society".

She said the government was looking at what improvements could be made to better prepare for or prevent future attacks.
