Norwegian anti-Islamic fanatic Anders Behring Breivik arrived in court for day five of his trial Friday (April 20). Breivik is on trial for killing eight people with a car bomb at government headquarters in Oslo, then gunning down 69 people, most of them teenagers, at a Labour Party summer youth camp on Utoeya island. Earlier this week, upon arrival into the court Breivik saluted the court with a closed fist hand gesture before sitting down. Friday he appeared not to make the gesture. During Thursday's testimony, Breivik said he had considered bombing the annual May 1 parade in Oslo, a Labour Party convention and a conference of journalists, but opted for a new plan after the bomb-making took too long. Although he pleaded not guilty, he admitted the killings, saying his victims were traitors who supported immigration and multiculturalism, threatening Norwegian ethnic purity. Breivik's trial, set to last 10 weeks, turns on the question of his sanity and thus whether he will be jailed or detained in a psychiatric institution. He has said that an insanity ruling would be "worse than death".
