(Newser) – Anders Behring Breivik's two months in solitary confinement have turned him into quite the whiner. During a court hearing in Oslo today, the killer complained that being kept in isolation was a kind of "torture"—after he was slapped with four more weeks in solitary. The judge ruled that it was necessary to take measures to prevent him from communicating with possible accomplices, as police work to determine whether said accomplices exist. The judge noted that Breivik had previously made an identical complaint, reports Reuters.
