Norway Police: Mosque shooting in Norway an act of terrorism
On Saturday, a gunman opened fire on the Al-Noor Islamic Centre, on the outskirts of the capital Oslo. One person in the mosque managed to overpower the gunman and was injured in the process. The suspect was arrested after the attack. A man in his 20s, after the shooting inside the Al-Noor Islamic Center that wounded one person, was taken into custody, Oslo police said. Investigators so far think no one else was involved in violence at the mosque, located in the Oslo suburb of Baerum. Police also charged the suspect with murder after his 17-year-old stepsister was found dead in a separate location.
The Oslo Police department said forensic work at the mosque “confirms that several shots were fired, but the number of shots and the type of weapons are not yet established.” “The fact that the aggressor entered a mosque armed and from the investigation so far has been found to have expressed hostile attitudes against immigrants has led the police to investigate this attack as an attempted act of terrorism,” the police department said in a statement.
