 Norway will appeal the verdict in the case mass killer Anders Behring Breivik brought over his prison conditions, the justice ministry said on Tuesday.

"I have asked the Office of the Attorney General to appeal the verdict," justice minister Anders Anundsen said in a statement.


Norway violated Breivik's human rights by keeping him in a "completely locked world" after being sentenced for killing 77 people in twin attacks in 2011, the Oslo district court ruled on April 20.
