Breivik Claims Self-Defense

Anders Behring Breivik, the man accused of killing 77 people in Norway last summer, claimed he did so in self-defense. “I acknowledge the acts but do not plead guilty, and I claim I was doing it in self-defense.” Breivik’s trial moved forward after an expert found him sane, overruling an earlier diagnosis. Breivik was defiant and unrepentant in court, raising a closed fist in salute and saying he doesn’t recognize the court’s authority.
