Anders Behring Breivik, who is on trial for killing 77 people in twin attacks in Norway in July, told the court on Tuesday that "two other cells" exist, each consisting of just one person.

The right-wing extremist said the term "commander", which he uses for himself, refers to "a person who has authority and loose ties with two other cells."

"I am a self-run and independent cell, and I am connected to two others," he told the Oslo District Court, adding that each of the other cells consisted of one person.

Breivik has said he is a member of the Knights Templar organization, which the prosecution on Monday said it did not believe existed.

On Tuesday, the confessed killer insisted that everything he had said about the group was true, but that he may have embellished his description a little, stressing the group was made up of a few individuals around Europe.
