Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian man who shocked the world by killing 77 people in July 2010, has to undergo a new psychiatric evaluation, an Oslo court has ruled.

The need for a new evaluation has been triggered by widespread criticism of the previous findings, Judge Wenche Elizabeth Arntzen has explained.

Two new experts, Ragnar Aspaas and Terje Toerrisen, have been appointed to carry out the new evaluation.

Breivik does not want to cooperate with any new experts, as he has lost all trust with the first two after reading their report, his lawyer Tord Jordet has told the Norwegian Dagbladet.

The original report said the 32 year-old Norwegian lived in his "own delusional universe where all his thoughts and acts are guided by his delusions".

The 32-year-old right-wing extremist has been in custody since the 22 July attacks in Oslo and at a youth camp on the island of Utoeya, in which he shocked the world by killing 77 people, mostly teenagers.
