Oslo: Imprisoned Norwegian slaughterer Anders Behring Breivik gave a Nazi salute after returning to court, on Tuesday, to argue that his isolation in the jail violated his rights.

The right-wing extremist dubbed his imprisonment as "torture" while the state said that he was being treated fairly.

  • Breivik is a perpetrator of the 2011 Norway attacks.
  • He killed as many as 77 people in 2011 by bombing central Oslo.
  • He was sentenced to 21 years in prison in 2012.
  • The 37-year-old mass-murderer entered the court, in a black suit, at around 0900 hrs (08:00 GMT).
  • He shook hands with lawyers and gave the ‘Nazi salute’ after the police removed his handcuffs.
  • Breivik is mainly challenging the government over his solitary confinement.
  • He claims an excessive use of handcuffs in his imprisonment which violates human rights.
