Anders Behring Breivik was "a little bit surprised" he was able to pull off a bombing and shooting rampage accused of killing 76 people in total, his lawyer said.

His client was surprised that his plan "succeeded -- succeeded in his mind," attorney Geir Lippestad said at a news conference. he is accused of shooting 68 people dead Friday.

Breivik used drugs before the attacks that were designed to keep him strong and awake, his attorney said.

Lippestad said, early to say if Breivik will plead insanity. Asked if his client was insane, he responded: "Yes, he may be."
Lippestad said it was "very difficult" to describe Breivik's manner -- "he is not like anyone."

Norwegian police released the first four names of victims of Friday's terror attacks Tuesday afternoon.

U.S. President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden visited the Norwegian ambassador's residence in Washington Tuesday to "offer condolences to the people of Norway after the tragic killings that occurred last week," according to a White House statement.

Earlier, Breivik's father said his son should have killed himself instead of allegedly going on the killing spree.

Breivik's father, who was interviewed at his home in France, said he would not be visiting his son as the legal process continues.
