Anders Behring Breivik, a far right Norwegian extremist, on Friday was sentenced to 21 years in prison for killing 77 people in two separate attacks in Norway in 2011.
A regional court in Norwegian capital of Oslo announced the court's verdict on Breivik on Friday as Breivik and his attorneys listened.
Relatives of those killed and wounded as well as some of the wounded individuals themselves attended Norway's historic trial.
Breivik was brought to the trial with his hands cuffed. He was kept in a glass cubicle and seemed to be very calm.
Once the trial began, Breivik's handcuffs were removed.
He listened to verdict by smiling
On the last day of the trial, the verdict was issued by a chief judge and five others.
The chief judge read out the verdict and said Breivik was sentenced to 21 years in prison for killing a total of 77 people in 2011.
Breivik was seen smiling as he listened to the court's verdict.
The chief judge said that Breivik was sane enough to be held criminally responsible for Norway's worst attacks.

During his trial, Breivik had said that he was sane and he conducted the terror acts to protect his country and Europe from Muslims.
On July 22, 2011, Breivik killed 77 people in separate bomb and gun attacks in Norway.

Breivik's trial was broadcast live on Norwegian and Swedish TV channels.
