Breivik trial in Norway ends with walkout by families

The trial of Anders Behring Breivik has ended in Norway with a walkout by families of victims in protest at his attempts to justify the massacre.

Breivik bombed government buildings in Oslo before shooting young Labour Party supporters at a camp on the island of Utoeya.

Mr Breivik's defence team have said he should be considered sane and have sought his acquittal.

Lawyer Geir Lippestad told the court in Norway his client had been driven by extreme politics, not violence.

Judges will deliver their verdict on 24 August.

Richard Galpin reports.
