Anders Breivik says judgement is 'illegitimate'

The Norwegian far-right nationalist Anders Breivik is speaking in court near the end of his trial.

Mr Breivik said that in his view the judgement is "illegitimate" but he said he would not appeal because to do so would "legitimise this court".

The judge cut him off mid-sentence as he appealed "to all militant nationalists in Norway and Europe". He gave the nationalist salute, as he has on many previous occasions, before speaking.

"He is getting what he deserves," said Alexandra Peltre, 18, whom Breivik shot in the thigh on Utoeya.
