Norwegian mass killer Anders Breivik is officially sane.
A court has ruled he was sane when he killed 69 people, many of them teenagers, on the island of Utoya and when he planted a bomb outside a government building in Oslo, killing eight.
It's over a year since the worst case of violence in Norway for over half a century attracted the world's attention, first as news of the attacks broke, and then as the country bounced back.
A court has declared Anders Breivik is sane
Immediately after the attack, Norwegian diplomat Eirik Bergesen blogged for The Huffington Post UK, saying his country was passing the test of terror. "Of course the atrocious terrorist attack shocked Norway. But the biggest shock to the world may be that it isn't changing Norway," he wrote.
Huff Post Journalist Michael Rundle also interviewed a survivor of the massacre, Adrian Pracon, who said he found out why he was spared by Breivik during the killer's trial. "When I looked at him I saw myself," Breivik said of Pracon.
