Victim's brother throws shoe at Norway killer Breivik


Confessed Norwegian killer Ander Behring Breivik has had a shoe thrown at him by the brother of one of the victims.

Hayder Mustafa Qasim, who is from Iraq, also shouted abuse at Breivik.

The incident on Friday caused the first disruption to the peaceful trial taking place in an Oslo courtroom.

Qasim told a local paper he had made eye-contact with Breivik before throwing the shoe and was unrepentant: “I did it on purpose and I don’t regret it. I was very satisfied when people were clapping and I did feel that what I was doing was right,” he said.

Karar Mustafa Qasim was one of the 77 people who died in Norway’s worst peacetime massacre carried out by Breivik on July 22 2011. The 19-year-old had moved to Norway from Iraq as an asylum-seeker.
