Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik has released a 27-page letter bemoaning his conditions in prison.

The 33-year-old, who murdered 77 people in 2011, is currently serving a 21-year sentence.

In the letter he bemoaned the "800" strip searches he has had and the fact that he does not enjoy 'enough' social interaction.

Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik has written a 27-page letter detailing how he believes his prison conditions "breach his human rights", according to Norwegian newspaper VG.

In the letter Breivik complains his coffee is served cold, he is not given enough butter on his bread, and that he is unable to keep his moisturiser in his cell, which he believes is sparsely decorated and has no view.

33-year-old Breivik, jailed for killing 77 people in a mass shooting on the holiday island of Utoey in July last year, also complains that he is subject to strip searches and is unable to play video games.

Tord Jordet, one of his lawyers, confirmed the letter's authenticity to AFP. He said:

"He is aware that, taken separately, his grievances can seem unimportant, but taken together, they paint a grim picture."
