Anders Behring Breivik who confessed mass shooting that killed 77 people on July 22, 2011.

Anders Behring Breivik threatened to hunger strike until he dies of starvation in protest at bad prison conditions and spending less time with prison staff.

"Unless the 02/09/15 escalation [sic] is reversed, I will eventually continue the hunger strike until death. I can not stand any more," he wrote in an open letter and sent to Norwegian and Swedish media.

Breivik has sentenced to 21 years at Skien prison due to twin terror attack in 2011, which he exploded a bomb in the government quarters and killed eight people in Oslo. Also opened fire at political youth camp and killed 69 more.

Also he complained in his letter about his acceptance to a political science program in University of Oslo which he could not continue.

"Studying and corresponding is not humanly possible under such circumstances, and this applies to anyone who is isolated under such conditions," he wrote in the letter.

"The decision about the drastic deterioration of prison conditions forced me to drop out of my studies, which in turn means that I will lose my place at the University. The studies, which were made possible for only thirteen full days before the Minister of Justice put an end to them, were the only thing I had" he added.

Otherwise, Breivik claimed he was mistreated for four years and exposed to 884 compulsory naked searches, 2300 grab maneuvers and two and a half years of solitary confinement in prison with under five minutes of human contact on a regular day.

The lawyer of Breivik, Oystein Storrvi confirms that Breivik will stop eating and conditions in prison have deteriorated.

"I can confirm that there is less of the little that was,"  he said to Norway's Dabladet. "Total isolation from other people has been maintained, while his movements are confined to a smaller space. He also has less time with officers’’ he added.
