Norway mass killer Anders Breivik claims state is trying to kill him
March 16, Oslo: Mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik has accused the Norwegian state of trying to kill him by keeping him in isolation. He described it as “torture”.
He told the court it would have been more humane to shoot him than treat him like an animal for the past five years, reports said.
He carried out a bombing in central Oslo before driving to the island of Utoeya, where he opened fire on children at a Labour party youth camp, killing 77 people.
Breivik, 37, told the judge in a converted gym at Skien prison on Wednesday that he would fight for National Socialism (Nazism) until the day he died.
However, he made no attempt to repeat the Nazi salute he had given on the first day of the hearing, after the judge urged him not to.
He praised the rise of the far right in Greece and of right-wing parties in Germany and said he drew strength from Adolf Hitler, while asserting that he no longer believed in violent revolution.
