    Norway murderer Anders Behring Breivik wins human rights case

    April 20, Oslo: Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik has won part of a human rights case against the Norwegian state.

    The court upheld his claim that some of his treatment amounted to "inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment", reports said.

    After the judgement, Breivik's lawyer, Oystein Storrvik, called for his solitary confinement to be repealed.

    He had challenged the government over his solitary confinement, which saw him kept alone in his cell for 22 to 23 hours a day, denied contact with other inmates and only communicating with prison staff through a thick glass barrier.

    Breivik, a right-wing extremist, killed dozens of young centre-left political activists in an attack on the island of Utoya in July 2011.

    Earlier that day, he set off a car bomb in the capital, Oslo, killing eight people, BBC reported.
