OSLO - Norwegian Anders Behring Breivik is in all likelyhood "insane", his lawyer said after the anti-Islam radical admitted to bomb and shooting spree in Norway on Friday that killed 76 people.

"This whole case indicated that he is insane," Geir Lippestad told reporters. He added that it was too early to say if his client would plead insanity.

Lippestad added that Breivik said that he is part of an anti-Islam network that has two groups in Norway and several more abroad. Norwegian police and researchers have cast doubt on such claims.

"He talks about two cells in Norway, but several cells abroad," said Lippestad.
