In Oslo on Tuesday, the drama took place outside of the trial of Anders Behring Breivik. Just beyond the courthouse, a man set himself on fire. Police could be seen tending to the man who they say doused himself with a liquid before lighting himself. They also say the man who appeared to be in his 50s attempted to breach the security fence. He was taken to the hospital and had serious injuries to his torso. The incident took place as young survivors of Breivik's rampage at a youth camp shared their stories with the court. Breivik is on trial for killing eight people with a car bomb, then shooting dead 69, mostly teenagers. Deborah Gembara, Reuters.
