A man set himself on fire today in front of the courthouse in Oslo where Anders Behring Breivik is being tried. He attempted to break through police barricades, and demanded that police shoot him. Then he fell down, and police officers extinguished the flames.
One report says he is a “foreign national”, and the Norwegian MSM haves pixellated his face in the news videos, so he is almost certainly a culture-enricher.

Man in Flames Tried to Enter Oslo Court
A man set himself on fire on Tuesday outside the Oslo courthouse where Anders Behring Breivik is on trial for killing 77 people last year, but there was no evidence the two events were linked, police said.
The man, whose identity was not known, suffered serious injuries, Norwegian police said.
“The man crossed the street and set himself on fire,” Kjell Jan Kverme, head of police security operations outside the courthouse, told AFP. “Police officers pulled off his clothes and put out the fire.”
Commercial broadcaster TV2 quoted witnesses as saying the man had shouted in Swedish: “Shoot me! Shoot me!”
The incident took place outside the large security tents equipped with metal detectors set up outside the Oslo district court for the 10-week duration of Breivik’s trial.
Police, who said they believed the man was a Norwegian citizen, confirmed that he had shouted something but could not confirm what he had said.
Kverme said the man was seriously injured, adding that his motive was not known and that there was no evidence so far to say it was linked to the Breivik trial.
