OSLO - Anders Behring Breivik roared a "battle cry" and appeared both angry and joyous as he shot people one by one with a distorted face, survivors of the Norwegian far-right killer's massacre told a court on Wednesday.

"I heard screaming but I couldn't make out the words," Ingvild Leren Stensrud, 17, who was shot in the leg and shoulder, said.

Stensrud, who survived after another victim fell on her, knocking her to the floor and creating the impression that she was dead, said she initially thought Breivik was not alone.

"I thought they (the attackers) were exchanging messages but realizing he was alone, I think the scream was actually a battle cry," she testified. Breivik made sure his victims were dead by delivering a control shot to their heads one by one, she added.
