During the day, five witnesses will also give details of events on the island.
On Utoeya, Breivik shot most of his victims several times, often using the first shot to take down his target then following up with a shot to the head.
On Monday (May 14) the witness segment of the trial will start.
The Oslo court has decided that the testimonies of witnesses and injured will not be broadcast on television. The ban also includes the forensic expert witness statements.
