Some 40,000 people have gathered on an Oslo square to sing a popular peace song which mass killer Anders Behring Breivik condemned at his trial.

The right-wing extremist had accused the singer ofChildren Of The Rainbow, Lillebjørn Nilsen, of being a Marxist who sought to brainwash children.

Nilsen led the crowd on Thursday in singing the song on Youngstorget Square, close to the courthouse.

Inside, the trial heard testimony from survivors of the Oslo bomb attack.

It is the ninth day of Breivik’s trial for the killing of eight people in Oslo and 69 on the island of Utøya, as well as the wounding of more than 200 others.

He admits the attacks on 22 July last year but denies guilt or insanity.
