Norwegian right-wing fanatic Anders Behring Breivik was today sentenced to 21 years in jail for mass murder after he was declared sane.
The militant extremist, who killed 77 people in a shooting and bombing spree last July, will now be sent to prison rather than a mental hospital.
He had admitted to the murders and repeatedly denied the prosecution's claim that he was insane, insisting he was a political prisoner and his deplorable actions were deliberate and considered rather than those of a madman.
Breivik, who will serve a minimum of ten years in prison, murdered eight people by planting a bomb at the government's headquarters in Oslo and shot dead 69 - half of them teenagers - at a youth camp on a nearby island.
