Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols says prison officials in Colorado inserted IVs into his veins and force fed him following hunger strikes this year.

Nichols recently filed a handwritten document in a lawsuit filed against officials at the federal Supermax prison in Florence, Colo., over the lack of whole grains, unpeeled fruit and fewer refined foods in his diet. He said he has gone through three hunger strikes since February.

Nichols said prison officials force fed him twice after his weight dropped 25 and 35 pounds to 135 and 125 pounds, respectively.

He is serving life for conspiracy and involuntary manslaughter in the 1995 federal building bombing that killed 168 people. Timothy McVeigh was convicted of murder and executed.
