The Norwegian judge presiding over the detention hearing for Anders Behring Breivik said that the he approved the remand extension of the bombing and shooting attack suspect by up to eight weeks, noting that statements made by Breivik's statements "sufficiently proves that the accused acted with the intent of terror."

Also justifying the suspect's continued remand in solitary confinement, the judge said there "is an immediate risk that the accused would tamper with evidence in the case" were he released. The judge also referenced that "the accused has given statements that require further investigation including a statement about 'two more cells in our organization.'"
