Norway mass murder suspect claims self-defense
The man accused of killing 77 people in a bomb and gun rampage in Norway last summer claimed self-defense on Monday.
“I acknowledge the acts but do not plead guilty, and I claim I was doing it in self-defense,” Anders Behring Breivik told a court in Oslo, Norway.
Breivik made the remarks as he went on trial for the July 22 killings to which he has admitted.
Earlier during the proceedings, he raised a clenched fist and said he did not recognize the authority of the court.
