Breivik makes Nazi salute as court reviews inhumane prison regime
Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik made a Nazi salute at the opening of an appeal case on his prison conditions today, repeating the provocative gesture he made in a lower court hearing. The extended arm gesture, sure to offend families of the 77 killed in 2011, earned Breivik a reprimand from Judge Oystein Hermansen, who described it as "offensive to the dignity of the court" and "disturbing." Wearing a dark suit, with a shaved head and thick brown beard with a touch of grey, Breivik, 37, appeared more haggard than during his last court appearance in April. He agreed not to repeat the salute. The appeals court is examining Breivik's case after a lower court in Oslo ruled in April that his rights had been violated and he was subjected to "inhumane" and "degrading" treatment in prison, in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Concentrate on work else you could lose some money through neglect or indifference. Stay clear of fresh proposals and also from those people who are known to give unwanted advice. You are better judge of your condition and take all measures to protect your job or financial interests. At a family gathering you may not like the overtures or attention of a person who is a pest, say so in your own interest. You will not be hurting anyone.
