Like the rest of Scandinavian countries, Norway is usually known for its progressive-mindedness when it comes to gender equality, yet the country's leading brand of dairy products Prior has created a minor controversy after unveiling their latest line of gender-branded eggs, dubbed "Princess Eggs" and "Pirate Eggs" for boys and girls respectively and complete with bright pink and dark blue packagings. Despite the ridicule that the products have drawn, Prior's parent company Nortura defended the decision by saying that they didn't want to over-think it and simply wanted to get children to eat more eggs.

"I acknowledge the acts, but not criminal guilt."

So Anders Behring Breivik told a Norwegian court this morning, asserting that he had acted in self-defense in killing 77 in July 2011 and that his actions were "cruel but necessary." He added: "I do not recognize the Norwegian courts. You have received your mandate from political parties which support multiculturalism." Breivik has said he acted against those he considered to be "state traitors" for opening Norway up to multiculturalism and allowing a "Muslim invasion" of Europe.

The key issue to be resolved -- clearly -- during his 10-week trial for terrorism is that of Breivik's mental health, which will determine whether he is sent to prison or into psychiatric care.
