The defense lawyer who was hit by the shoe, Vibeke Hein Baere, told national broadcaster NRK she hoped the incident would not be repeated during the trial, which is scheduled to end in late June.

"There are many weeks left and I hope and believe that we will return to the dignified manners we have seen up until now," she said.
