UDPATE: Prosecutor: Norway suspect seems unaffected

OSLO, Norway (AP) -- The prosecutor in Norway's twin terror attacks says the accused seemed unaffected by the tragedy he perpetrated during a court hearing.

Anders Behring Breivik has confessed to bombing Oslo's government headquarters and opening fire on young people at an island retreat. He has said in a manifesto that the killings were "marketing" for his belief that Europe must be saved from Muslim colonization.

Prosecutor Christian Hatlo told reporters Monday that Breivik was very calm and "seemed unaffected by what has happened."

He said Breivik read from the manifesto during the closed hearing. Police lowered the death toll Monday to 76 from 93.

OSLO, Norway (AP) -- The father of the man who has confessed to carrying out Friday's terror attacks in Norway says he's ashamed and disgusted by his son's acts.

Jens David Breivek tells a Swedish tabloid (Expressen) that he wishes his son had committed suicide.

The former diplomat says he severed all contact with his son in 1995, when Anders Breivek was 16. He says he no longer feels like his father, and that the news of the attack left him feeling paralyzed.

The elder Breivik adds he can't understand how his son could "kill so many innocent people and just seem to think that what he did was OK."

Anders Breivek has confessed to gunning down 68 people in the island massacre and setting the bomb in downtown Oslo that killed another eight.

Police have surrounded the father's home in southern France, saying they are there to ensure public order.

Jens Breivek says he will live in shame for the rest of his life because of his son's actions.

OSLO, Norway (AP) -- A judge has ruled that the man who has confessed to carrying out a bombing and shooting spree that left 93 people dead in Norway will be held in complete isolation for four weeks.

Anders Behring Breivik could tamper with evidence and claims that there in our "two more cells in our organization," the judge said after a hearing Monday.

Breivik pleaded not guilty, saying he wanted to save Europe and send a strong signal, not to kill as many as possible, Judge Kim Heger said.
