Norwegian mass killer's trial begins

NORWEGIAN mass killer Anders Behring Breivik had photographed himself with a badge proclaiming that he was a ''Marxist hunter'' and that he had a ''multicultural-traitor hunting permit - tagging not required, no bag limit'', Oslo District Court was told yesterday.

Prosecutor Sveinn Holden also said that Breivik had played the mission-based computer game World of Warcraft fulltime for a year in 2006-07 using the character name ''Justicor''.

Mr Holden was giving the opening address in Breivik's trial, which began yesterday.

Breivik, 33, is charged with terrorism offences relating to the killing of 77 people and the injuring of 33 in a bomb attack in central Oslo and a shooting massacre at a teenagers' summer camp on the Norwegian island of Utoya last July.

Mr Holden played to the court a 12-minute video that Breivik had compiled for YouTube using images and music downloaded to the internet. The killer wiped away tears as he watched the film.
