If Breivik was sane, how do we confront the ideology that drove him?   
Monday, 27 August 2012

Produced by Tim Roxburgh

Story audio


Perpetrator of the mass killing in Norway, Anders Breivik, has been found sane and given the maximum possible sentence in a Norwegian court. Now that the court has found Breivik to be sane, some commentators argue that Norway and the world must make more efforts to confront the far-right and racist ideologies that motivated him. But for now many Norwegians are simply relieved that the trial is over, and feel that they can now begin to get on with their lives.
