Breivik Trial: Shoe Thrown at Norway Mass Killer
A relative of one of those killed by Anders Behring Breivik has thrown a shoe at the defendant, interrupting his trial in the Norwegian capital Oslo.
“You killed my brother! Go to hell!” the relative screamed in the courtroom.
The shoe missed Breivik, hitting his defence lawyer.
Breivik, 33, admits killing 69 people at a youth summer camp on Utoeya island and eight in a bomb attack in Oslo on 22 July 2011. But he denies criminal responsibility.
The shoe-throwing incident on Friday brought spontaneous applause from members of the public in the courtroom.
The relative of the victim - who was not identified - was later led out of the room by the security staff. Some reports say he is from Iraq.
Shoe-throwing is seen a form of protest and public insult in many countries, but the practice came to the fore when a shoe was hurled by an Iraqi reporter at the then US President George W Bush in Baghdad in 2008.
