OSLO, Norway — Theself-described perpetrator of Norway’s deadly bombing andshooting rampage was orderedheld in solitary confinementafter calmly telling a court thattwo other cells of collaboratorsstood ready to join his murder-ous campaign.Anders Behring Breivik,who has admitted bombingthe capital and opening fireon a youth group retreat on anisland resort, told authoritieshe expects to spend the rest of his life in prison. Declaring hewanted to save Europe from“Muslim domination,” heentered a plea of not guiltyon Monday that will guaranteehim future court hearings andopportunities to address thepublic, even indirectly.Norway has been stunnedby the attacks and riveted byBreivik’s paranoid and dis-turbing writings. Hundredsthronged the courthouse, hop-ing to get their first glimpseof the man blamed for thedeaths of 76 people — loweredMonday from 93. At one point,a car drove through the crowdand onlookers beat it with theirfists, thinking Breivik mightbe inside.Still tens of thousands of Norwegians also defied hisrhetoric of hate to gather incentral Oslo to mourn the vic-tims and lay thousands of flow-ers around the city.Police believe Breivik, 32,acted alone, despite his grandclaims in a 1,500-page mani-festo that he belonged to amodern group of crusaders.But they have not completelyruled out that he had accom-plices.Judge Kim Heger orderedBreivik held for eight weeks,including four in isolation, not-ing his reference to “two morecells within our organization.”In an interview publishedMonday, Breivik’s estrangedfather said he wished his sonhad killed himself instead of unleashing his rage on inno-cent people.The outpouring of emo-tion stood in stark contrastto what prosecutor ChristianHatlo described as Breivik’scalm demeanor at the hearing,which was closed to the publicover security concerns and toprevent a public airing of hisextremist views. Hatlo said he“seemed unaffected by whathas happened.”Meanwhile, police revealedthey had dramatically over-counted the number of peopleslain in the shooting spree onUtoya island, lowering thedeath toll there from 86 to68. Police spokesman OysteinMaeland said police and res-cuers were focused on help-ing survivors and securing thearea, and may have countedsome bodies twice, though hedid not immediately explainhow the errors occurred.Police also raised the tollfrom a bombing outside thegovernment’s headquarters inOslo from seven to eight.The sharp reduction in thedeath toll adds to a list of police missteps: They took 90minutes to arrive at the islandretreat after the first shot andsurvivors who called emergen-cy services reported being toldto stay off the lines unless theywere calling about the Oslobombings.On Monday, the forcerevealed its entire Oslo heli-copter crew had been sent onvacation and thus couldn’t bemobilized to the scene.By contrast, Breivik, whodonned a police uniform aspart of a ruse to draw campersto him, appeared in total con-trol during the island rampage,police official Odd ReidarHumlegaard said.“He’s been merciless,”Humlegaard said.Authorities say Breivikused two weapons during theisland attack — both boughtlegally, according to his mani-festo. A doctor treating victimstold The Associated Press thegunman used illegal “dum-dum”-style bullets designedto disintegrate inside the bodyand cause maximum internaldamage.Breivik faces 21 years inprison for the terrorism charg-es, but he has told authori-ties he never expects to bereleased. While 21 years is thestiffest sentence a Norwegian judge can hand down, a spe-cial sentence can be given toprisoners deemed a danger tosociety who are locked up for20-year sentences that can berenewed indefinitely.

LONDON — An autopsy onsinger Amy Winehouse failedto determine what killed the27-year-old star, leaving fansand family with a weeks-longwait for the results of toxicol-ogy tests. Her funeral will beheld today.A family spokesman saidthe private funeral “for fam-ily and close friends” wouldbe held at an undisclosed timeand place.Winehouse’s devastatedparents visited mourners out-side her north London home tothank them for their support.The singer, who had strug-gled with drug and alcoholabuse for years, was found deadSaturday at home by a memberof her security team, who calledan ambulance. It arrived too lateto save her.The Metropolitan Policesaid Monday that a forensicpost mortem “did not establisha formal cause of death andwe await the results of furthertoxicology tests.” Those areexpected to take two to fourweeks.An inquest into the sing-er’s death was opened andadjourned at London’s St.Pancras Coroner’s Court.During the two-minute hear-ing, an official read out thename, birth date and addressof Winehouse, described as “adivorced lady living at CamdenSquare NW1.”“She was a singer songwriterat the time of her death and wasidentified by her family here atSt. Pancras this morning,” saidcoroner’s officer Sharon Duff.Duff said the scene of Winehouse’s death “was inves-tigated by police and deter-mined non-suspicious.”In Britain, inquests are heldto establish the facts wheneversomeone dies violently or inunexplained circumstances.Assistant Deputy CoronerSuzanne Greenaway saidWinehouse’s inquest wouldresume on Oct. 26.The singer’s father, motherand brother visited her home onMonday, stopping to inspect themounds of bouquets, candlesand handwritten notes acrossthe road from the Victorianhouse.Her father, MitchWinehouse, thanked mournersfor their tributes.“I can’t tell you what thismeans to us — it really is mak-ing this a lot easier for us,” hesaid.“We’re devastated and I’mspeechless but thanks for com-ing.”The singer’s mother, Janis,was in tears as she examined theflowers, candles, vodka bottles,flags, drawings and handwrit-ten cards left by neighbors, fansand well-wishers. Many of theofferings expressed the samesentiment: “What a waste.”“I’ll remember her as atroubled soul,” said fan EthnaRouse, who brought her 4-year-old son to leave a bouquet.“Like many artists in the world— they are tortured souls, andthat’s where the talent comesfrom.”The singer had battled herdemons in public, too oftenmaking headlines for her erraticbehavior, destructive relation-ships and abortive performanc-es.But she was rememberedfondly by her neighbors inCamden, the creative but grittyneighborhood where she livedon and off for years.“She was too young to dieand too talented, and too beauti-ful,” said Peggy Conlon, land-lady of the Dublin Castle pub,where Winehouse occasion-ally stopped for a drink. “She’ssorely missed by everyone, notone person had a bad word tosay about that kid.”Last month, Winehousecanceled her European come-back tour after she swayed andslurred her way through barelyrecognizable songs in her firstshow in the Serbian capital,Belgrade. Booed and jeered off stage, she flew home and hermanagement said she wouldtake time off to recover.
