Police lower Norway attacks death toll to 76

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.
