Norway paused to observe a minute of silence Monday for the 93 victims of the country's worst-ever peacetime massacre as Anders Behring Breivik, the man who admitted carrying out the attack, faced a court hearing.

AFP - Norway observed a minute's silence on Monday as the country paid solemn tribute to the victims of last week's twin bomb and shooting attacks that left 93 dead.

Thousands of people bowed their heads in silence outside Oslo's main university at a ceremony led by Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and King Harald V who then signed a book of condolence inside.
