Norway gunman convoy leaves court after hearing

OSLO (Reuters) - A Norwegian police convoy carrying gunman Anders Behring Breivik, who admitted to Friday's mass shootings in Norway, has left an Oslo court house after a custody hearing on Monday, police said.

Prosecutors said they would ask for eight weeks of detention for Breivik at the hearing. That can be extended before trial.

The hearing has been closed to the media and the judge will write out his conclusion and announce it later on Monday.
