OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry
Nichols says his hunger strike to demand a more fiber-rich diet in
prison has been somewhat successful.
Nichols says in a letter that the federal Supermax prison in
Florence, Colo., addressed his medical and religious needs but
"much more still needs to be done." He didn't provide specifics.
A message left for prison officials wasn't returned Saturday. His
protest began Feb. 5.
The Oklahoman newspaper reports Nichols wrote the March 4 letter
to a local woman whose two grandsons were among 168 people killed
in the 1995 federal building bombing. They've exchanged letters
since his 2004 trial.
Nichols has filed a lawsuit that argues the lack of available
whole grains and fresh produce harms his health and violates his
religious beliefs, causing him to "sin against God."
