Violent crime in Norway killed and injured

In a small Norwegian town, people are attacked in the evening. According to the police, several of them are dead. The most important thing after this terrible news: the perpetrator has been caught.

Oslo – Several people were injured and killed in an act of violence in Norway. The Norwegian police announced this at a press conference.

The act took place around 6:30 p.m. in the center of the city of Kongsberg, which is located around 80 kilometers southwest of Oslo. The police could unfortunately confirm that there were several injuries and deaths, said the responsible police chief Øyvind Aas.



Police are investigating the violence in the center of Kongsberg.

The injured were taken to the hospital. At first he couldn’t say exactly how many victims there were.

Aas said a man was allegedly armed with a bow and arrow and was caught. It looks like a lone perpetrator. There is no search for further perpetrators.

The background initially remained unclear. According to the police, it was still too early to answer the question of whether it could have been a terrorist-motivated act.

Norway experienced the worst terrorist attack in modern history ten years ago. On July 22, 2011, right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik detonated a bomb hidden in a white van in the government district of Oslo, killing eight people in the process.

He then drove to the island of Utøya, about 30 kilometers away, where he pretended to be a police officer and opened fire on the participants in the annual summer camp of the youth organization of the Social Democratic Labor Party.

69 people, mostly teenagers and young adults, were killed on Utøya. Breivik named right-wing extremist and Islamophobic motives for his actions. He was sentenced to a long prison term in August 2012. dpa
