Norwegian killer complains of prison conditions

Breivik, 33, has said the attacks were justified because his victims were traitors for embracing multiculturalism.

The court found Breivik sane and said his sentence can be extended for as long as he is considered a danger to society.

In his letter to prison officials Breivik protested that the censorship of his letters was so strict that his freedom of expression was being impinged upon, Jordet said.

Norwegian tabloid VG, which aid it had acquired a copy of the letter, quoted Breivik as saying he was allowed to use only a soft and bendable safety pen.
