Bow and arrow attack appears to be act of terror – Norwegian officials
Norway’s security service (PST) says a deadly bow and arrow attack in Norway which left five people dead appears to have been an act of terror.
The suspect, a 37-year-old Danish citizen named Espen Andersen Brathen, had converted to Islam and there were fears he had been radicalized.
However a motive has not yet been determined.
He is accused of killing four women and a man on Wednesday night in the southern town of Kongsberg.
In a press release on Thursday, police said Brathen was due to appear in court on Friday at 09:00 local time.
A police lawyer told public broadcaster NRK he would be assessed by psychiatrists. During a press conference PST head, Hans Sverre Sjovold said the suspect had been “in and out of the health system for some time”.
