‘I defended myself’: Teenager who shot three men on night of protests breaks down in court

A teenager who shot three people during a night of protests against racial injustice in Wisconsin broke down in tears as he told his murder trial that he “didn’t do anything wrong”.

Kyle Rittenhouse, 18, insisted in his testimony that he opened fire only in self-defence after he was ambushed and attacked on the streets of Kenosha on 25 August last year.
