Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian far-right terrorist, will be allowed to receive visitors for the first time from Tuesday, after state prosecutors decided not to apply for continued restrictions.

The decision will open the way for Mr Breivik to give his first interviews with the media since he killed 77 people last July, and potentially to receive visits from those sharing his extreme anti-Islamic ideology.

Odd Gron, a lawyer at Lippestad, the firm representing Mr Breivik, said his client had received several letters from supporters requesting a visit.

"There have been requests from fans," he confirmed. "There are letters from people giving him support, there are people who want to tell him that they don't want to give him support, and also letters from journalists requesting arrangements."

Breivik, 32, has confessed to setting off a bomb that ripped through Oslo's government district on July 22, killing eight people, then opening fire at the summer camp of the governing Labour Party's youth wing, killing another sixty-nine.

But in a manifesto he released on the day of the attack, he argued that the killings were "atrocious" but "necessary" to alert white Norwegians to the threat of a creeping takeover by Islam.

Mr Gron said that the requested meetings will only go ahead if and when Breivik makes an application to the authorities at Ila prison, where he is being held in detention in the run-up to his trial in April.

"We have forwarded these requests to Mr Breivik, and so far he has not made any conclusion on any of them," he said. "He has not yet decided if he wants to take visits, who he wants to take visits from, and when."

The ban on visits expires on January 9 under the terms of the extension to Breivik's time in custody until February 6, which was decided by the Oslo court back in November. A similar ban on Breivik receiving letters and newspapers expired on 12 December.

The prison authorities still have the right to refuse Breivik a visit for safety reasons. The prison's four psychiatrists stoked controversy last week when it was revealed that they had seen no evidence that Breivik was psychotic, contradicting the conclusion of the official assessment requested by the Olso court.

Too many Norwegians in Norway
- Teacher wants more performing artists who look muslim

"We must recruit minorities to cultural activites, both performing and as public"

"More pigments"
- Norwegians have too fair skin to be acceptable to muslims in Norway?

By this, the teacher means the state must actively pick muslims to cultural positions, as in Norway, this is a tax financed area, with a Culture Minister

What is an artist?
What is a cultural performer?
What is a "minority" artist?

What would culture become if the Culture Minister were a muslim?

Multicultural dialogue center established at historic site
- Stiklestad, where Norway was Christianized in 1030

On a different scale, but in principle, it would be the same as opening a multicultural dialogue center at the Vatican, with the object of putting the Vatican and Christianity in the shadow.

At this first meeting The European council of religious leaders, with Bishop Emeritus Gunnar Stålsett in the front, gathered religious leaders from the Middle East and North Africa to discuss problems related to nation building after the Arab Spring.

There were no protesters present. Not surprisingly, as the natives are litterate and did not grow up with stone-throwing as something considered normal.
