Breivik at court - level 2

Breivik at court - level 2

21-03-2016 07:00

Anders Breivik is a Norwegian far-right extremist. In 2012, he killed 77 people in Oslo and Utoya Island.

Breivik is in a prison where he has a special three-room cell with a television and a computer. The prison allows him outside for exercise, but the killer says that he cannot see his family and he is suing Norway for inhumane treatment.

People set up a courtroom in Breivik’s prison. When Breivik arrived, he raised his arm in a Nazi salute. The court says that Breivik is not treated inhumanely.

Difficult words: cell (a prisoner’s room/rooms), sue (to say that somebody did something wrong and take him or her to court), inhumane (bad), treatment (how you treat people – behave toward them).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
