NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik raised his right arm in a Nazi salute on Tuesday as he arrived for the first day of the lawsuit he is bringing against the Norwegian state to change the conditions of his detention.

In that time, he has had just one visitor, his mother, who was allowed into prison and gave him a hug shortly before she died of cancer in 2013. Breivik, 37, will argue that his isolation in Skien jail violates a ban on "inhuman and degrading treatment" under the European Convention on Human Rights. The state says the conditions are lawful.
