A psychiatrist warned that the neo-Nazi mass murderer has ?asocial, histrionic, and narcissistic? personality disorders

Anders Breivik, who killed 77 people in Norway's worst peacetime attack, is still as dangerous today as he was 10 years ago, a court was warned on Wednesday.

Breivik is in the process of seeking conditional release from prison 10 years after he killed 77 individuals with a truck bomb in Oslo and a mass shooting on the island of Utoya.

Having appeared at his parole hearing on Tuesday, where he gave a Nazi salute, Breivik claimed he has distanced himself from violence and is seeking to be released after serving the minimum 10 years.

However, speaking to the court on Wednesday, psychiatrist Randi Rosenqvist claimed that the "risk of future acts of violence" being committed by Breivik has not diminished.

According to the psychiatrist, who has examined Breivik on multiple occasions over the past decade, the convicted murderer still suffers from "asocial, histrionic, and narcissistic" personality disorders.

The far-right extremist was sentenced to 21 years in prison after the attack, with the court able to extend his time behind bars if he is still deemed to be a threat to society.
