    Breivik Wants Better Video Games In Jail 'Hell' Sat, Feb 15, 2014

    Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik reportedly wants better video games in jail and has threatened to go on hunger strike if his demands are not met. Breivik, who killed 77 people in 2011, says the two prisons where he is being held are "hell" and he is seeking extra perks to help cope with the "torture"-like conditions. He sent a list of 12 demands to prison authorities, which also include access to a computer rather than a "worthless typewriter", doubling his weekly allowance from £30 to £60 to cover postage costs and an end to daily searches. Breivik, who is serving a 21-year jail term, has also demanded his PlayStation 2 games console be changed to a more up-to-date PS3 "with access to more adult games that I get to choose myself".

Breivik, who turned 35 yesterday, also demanded he be allowed to choose "more adult games" to play. "The hunger strike won't end until the Minister of Justice (Anders) Anundsen and the head of the KDI (the Norwegian Correctional Services) stop treating me worse than an animal," Breivik wrote.

  • Cold killer Breivik said sorry to mother for ruining her life
    Cold killer Breivik said sorry to mother for ruining her life Thu, Oct 31, 2013

    By Alister Doyle OSLO (Reuters) - Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik, who refused to show remorse for killing 77 people in 2011, hugged his mother and apologised for ruining her life before she died of cancer this year, according to a new biography. "The Mother", based on hours of conversations with Wenche Behring Breivik by journalist Marit Christensen and published on Thursday, says she once described herself as the world's "saddest mother" who both hated and loved her son. She broke down in tears when the police came to her house that night to say Anders Breivik was to blame for the massacre - a bombing in Oslo that killed 8 and a shooting rampage on a nearby island that killed 69, many of them teenagers. Breivik, a right-wing anti-Islamic fanatic now aged 34, is serving Norway's maximum sentence in jail for the attacks, which were aimed at the Labour-led government and its youth wing. More »
