Behring Breivik declared a paranoid schizophrenic.

The report on his mental health was delivered to the courts today. It's based on 35 hours of interviews with Behring Breivik and concludes that he over a period of several years developed paranoid schizophrenia and that he was in a state of psychosis during the massacre.
This will have an impact on how he will serve out his punishment. It's very likely he will be forced into a closed psychiatric ward instead of a normal prison. Doctors and other medical personnel will decide security. It's possible he will locked up for life if it's decided he's not safe for release.
Just wanted to update you folks on the matter.
Edit: Though the report has been written by experts, it's now up to the psychiatric specialists of the court to determine the validity of this report. Regardless of the outcome, there's still going to a massive trial against him. If the court psychiatrists agree with the report, I don't know whether or not he will still be held responsible for the monetary damage he did to the city of Oslo.
