A man who was reportedly a radicalized convert to Islam killed five victims and wounded others in a bow-and-arrow attack Wednesday near the Norwegian capital of Oslo before he was arrested, authorities said.
A police spokesman in the town of Kongsberg said there was “a confrontation” between officers and the assailant, but he did not elaborate.
“The man who carried out the act has been arrested by the police, and there is no active search for more people. Based on the information we have, there is one person behind this,” police spokesman Oeyvind Aas said.
