(Newser) – Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik isn't done complaining about his life in prison: Now he says prison officers are trying to drive him to suicide in conditions he describes as "a mini Abu Ghraib," with strict security regimes and unpredictable guards. What makes it so Abu Ghraib-like? Well, Breivik writes in a 27-page letter to prison officials, he is frustrated that guards do not cooperate with his carefully planned daily schedule and that they serve him cold coffee. The 33-year-old rightwing fanatic also alleges he is denied a reading lamp, has restricted access to candy, and is given daily strip searches. (Read more Anders Behring Breivik stories.)
