Norwegian mass killer Breivik applies to study political science at Oslo University

Norwegian mass killer Anders Breivik has applied to study at the University of Oslo. The move has triggering debate among university staff, who look likely to be forced to accept him. According to the Local, Knut Bjarkeid, the director at Ila Prison, where Breivik is serving a 21-year sentence, said he would encourage such a move. He said that the prison will always try to pave the way for inmates to get a formal education, so that they are able to get a job when they come out. However, several members of teaching staff at the department of Political Science said that they would refuse to teach the far-Right extremist. Breivik killed 77 people and wounded 242 others when he detonated a bomb in central Oslo and then opened fire at a Labour party youth camp in July 2011, the report added. (ANI)
