A man set himself on fire today outside an Oslo courthouse where the Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik is on trial for murdering 77 people last July.

Police and ambulances rushed to treat a man believed to be in his 50's who man doused himself with liquid and set himself on fire before attempting to breach the security fence around the courthouse. The man, who witnesses said appeared to be Caucasian and in his 50s, was taken to hospital with serious injuries on his torso.

This follows a shoe throwing incident last week by the brother of one of the victims which temporarily halted the trial of Breivik. Which continues with harrowing statements from injured survivors.
