A Norwegian judge remanded in custody for eight weeks on Monday the suspect behind a massive bombing and shooting spree, but there was no guilty plea entered, he told reporters.

Anders Behring Breivik will be held in solitary confinement for the first four weeks, with a ban on all communication with the outside world in a bid to aid a police investigation into his acts.

The suspect, 32, admitted the facts of the case, but did "not plead guilty," judge Kim Heger said after the closed-door hearing.
