The man who massacred 77 people last July in Norway said today in court that "I would have done it again," The Associated Press reports.
Anders Behring Breivik, an anti-Muslim extremist, again insisted he is the leader of "an 'anti-communist' resistance movement and an anti-Islam militant group he called the Knights Templar," the wire service adds.
It was last July 22 when Breivik first set off a bomb in Oslo, then drove to a nearby island and attacked a Labor Party youth camp.
In a statement to the court today, the admitted killer said "the attacks on July 22 were a preventive strike. I acted in self-defense on behalf of my people, my city, my country. ... I therefore demand to be found innocent of the present charges."
