Special purpose ward for Breivik; InBrief.

EVEN if found criminally insane, mass killer Anders Breivik is likely to remain inside the walls of the prison where he has been held since his bomb and gun attacks in July.

Norway's Health Directorate has approved plans to build a psychiatric ward inside Oslo's Ila Prison, specially designed for the 33-year-old right-wing extremist.

Breivik has been held at the prison since the attacks on July 22.

The self-styled anti-Muslim militant admitted the attacks, in which he killed 77 people.

Since his guilt is not in question, Breivik's mental state was the key issue during his trial, which ended last week.
