Self-confessed killer Anders Breivik in the courtroom in Oslo.

A relative of one of the victims of Anders Breivik’s rampage on the Norwegian island of Utoeya interrupted his mass murder trial by throwing a shoe at him and shouting, “You killed my brother! Go to hell!” The shoe missed Breivik and hit his lawyer instead.

The court had been reviewing autopsy reports.

Some in the court applauded the shoe-thrower as he was led away by police. A court official remarked that the incident was not surprising, given the emotional intensity of the trial. —ARK

BBC:

The shoe-throwing incident on Friday brought spontaneous applause from members of the public in the courtroom.

Someone was heard shouting: “Bravo!”

The shoe-thrower—identified by the Aftenposten newspaper as an Iraqi called Hayder Mustafa Qasim—was led out of the room by the security staff.

As someone of norwegian decent, I had to laugh at this.  Unfortunately, one of my
earliest memories is of my own norwegian father throwing a shoe during an argument with
my stepmother.  I think I may have even thrown a shoe or two somewhere along the line. 
Alas, norwegians may equal shoe throwers! LOL
