Oslo mosque shooting a suspected terrorist attack - Norwegian police

Norway mosque shooting probed as terror act Norway treating mosque shooting as 'attempted act of terror'

The head of Norway's domestic security agency says officials had received a "vague" tip a year ago about the suspected gunman in Saturday's Oslo mosque shooting, but it was not sufficient to act because officials had no information about any "concrete plans" of attack.

Witnesses said Manshaus entered al-Noor Islamic centre in Bærum, a suburb of Oslo, with several guns, but was overpowered by a 65-year-old member of the mosque, who managed to wrestle his weapons from him.

A man in his 20s was taken into custody after the shooting inside the mosque that wounded one person, Oslo police said.

"We're investigating this as an attempt to carry out an act of terrorism", assistant chief of police Rune Skjold said on Sunday.

Hours after the attack, the body of a young woman was found in a home in Baerum and police on Sunday confirmed that it was the suspect's 17-year-old stepsister.

A Norwegian man suspected of killing his stepsister and opening fire at a mosque near Oslo rejects allegations of murder and attempted murder, his lawyer said Monday.

Norway has been grappling with the fear of rising extremist violence tied to immigration at least since 2011, when an attacker killed 92 people in a bombing and mass shooting.

The attempted attack on al-Noor Islamic Center happened a day before Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Adha, one of the most important holidays on the Islamic calendar marking the end of the hajj pilgrimage.

The shooter, detained by the police, has been charged with murder.

If Alisson is set to miss 6-8 weeks of football, he will most likely not feature in the games against both those London clubs. The Reds face Chelsea in the Super Cup final this week, and will also face Arsenal and Chelsea before the end of September.

Only three people were inside the mosque at the time of the attack.

Prime Minister Erma Solberg said that working against hate speech was a priority.

Other worshippers were grateful for Rafiq's bravery.

"This video is key evidence", police attorney Paal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby said at a news conference.

Police first reported that the victim had been shot, but later said one person had sustained "minor injuries" and that it was unclear if they were gunshot wounds.

The man had been known to police before the incident, but according to Skjold he could not be described as someone with a "criminal background". "We are trying to combat this, but it's a challenge", she said.

"He is exercising his right not to be interrogated", his defense attorney, Unni Fries, told Reuters.

Oslo police wrote on Twitter: 'There has been a shooting episode inside the mosque'.
