Most of the front pages of Tuesday's newspapers have a photograph of Anders Breivik as he leaves a court in Norway.

He is seen with a slight smile as he is driven away after admitting two attacks that killed 76 people.

The Daily Mail calls it the "smirk of the maniac" and says he didn't show any remorse, while the Guardian talks of his defiance in the dock and his "boast" that more people would die.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror calls him the "Smiling Assassin".

The Times focuses on the victims of the attacks in Norway, printing photos of nine of them on its front page.

And the Sun highlights what it calls Mr Breivik's "chilling stare", while the Daily Star calls him the "Killer With Eyes of a Devil".

Meanwhile, the Daily Telegraph's lead story is about domestic politics.

It claims Downing Street is losing patience with Chancellor George Osborne, because of the continued weakness of the economy.

House prices are surging again, according to the Daily Express, in spite of the problems in the wider economy.

Quoting a property website, it reports that the cost of the typical semi is now more than £5,000 higher than it was in January.

The Independent returns to the phone-hacking scandal for its main story.

It says staff of Lord Macdonald, the former director of public prosecutions, warned him in 2006 that hacking went on at the News of the World.

And the Times leads with Foreign Secretary William Hague's suggestion that Britain is prepared to drop its insistence that Colonel Gaddafi leaves Libya.

The Daily Mirror says the "humiliating offer" will leave David Cameron's international standing "in tatters".

And the Daily Mail toasts the news that the official limits for safe alcohol consumption may be raised for the first time in 20 years.

MPs are reviewing the guidance which was introduced in 1987.
