OSLO, Norway (AP) — An Oslo district court judge decided Monday to hold the arraignment for the suspect in the twin attacks in Norway behind closed doors.
Judge Kim Heger made the decision on a request from police. The suspect, Anders Behring Breivik, had asked for an open hearing.
"Based on information in the case the court finds that today's detention hearing should be held behind closed doors," the court said in a statement. "It is clear that there is concrete information that a public hearing with the suspect present could quickly lead to an extraordinary and very difficult situation in terms of the investigation and security."
