STOCKHOLM, May 22 (Reuters) – Sweden’s high society, from
monarchs to politicians and the jet set, gathered on Tuesday in
a 17th century chapel in Stockholm for the baptism of the future
heir to the throne in a ceremony that has helped divert
attention away from royal scandals.
Long seen as one of the world’s most egalitarian societies,
Sweden has indulged in a bit of royal pomp over the last few
days and blanket media coverage of the christening of Princess
Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary, daughter of Crown Princess Victoria.
OSLO (Reuters) – Norwegian anti-Islamic fanatic Anders Behring Breivik complained on Wednesday he was being subjected to personal ridicule in court and demanded his killing of 77 people last summer be judged as a battle against immigration.
“I hope you will focus on the issue, not the person,” the 33-year-old Breivik told the court, visibly irritated and swiveling a pen in his hand.
