Norway mass killer Anders Breivik becoming a 'cult figure'

The lawyer who defended Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik has voiced concern that his client is becoming a cult figure, but insisted the right-wing extremist should have the right to express himself.

Lawyer Geir Lippestad said the best weapon against Breivik's anti-Islamic and anti-multicultural stance was open debate.

"What is most worrying is that I keep receiving messages from around the world that Breivik is increasingly a cult figure in some circles," Lippestad wrote in his memoirs published in Norway on Thursday.

"When you see images from Russia, the United States, Britain, Germany, Greece, Sweden and other countries where he has supporters, Breivik is undoubtedly becoming a model who can influence other people to have thoughts, ideas and plans that could end up transforming young people into terrorists and not into law-abiding citizens," he wrote.

 Breivik is serving a 21-year jail sentence for killing 77 people in Norway in twin attacks on July 22, 2011 that he described as "cruel but necessary". Full story...
