Norwegian mass murderer sues over prison conditions
SKIEN- Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in a 2011 bomb-and-shooting rampage, is set to address a court reviewing a government appeal against a ruling that his isolation in prison violates human rights.

 

The convicted killer is also appealing a court decision that his right to respect for private and family life was violated by restrictions on contacts with other right-wing extremists.

 

Last year, Breivik sued the government arguing that his solitary confinement, frequent strip searches and often being handcuffed in the early part of incarceration violated his human rights.
