• A Danish man in his 30s has been arrested and charged after five people were killed and two others injured in a series of attacks using a bow and arrows in Norway.

  • The attack took place at around 6.15pm local time on Wednesday in the suspect’s home town of Kongsberg, around 80km south-west of the capital, Oslo. It is thought to have started in or near a Coop store in the city centre.

  • One witness described a man “standing on the corner with arrows in a quiver on his shoulder and a bow in his hand”.

  • The suspect was arrested following what police called a “confrontation”, about 20 minutes after the attacks began.

  • Police said there were several crime scenes spread across “a large area” of the town and that the man in custody “is the only person implicated” so far.

  • Norway’s national police directorate said it had ordered officers nationwide to carry firearms.

  • Acting prime minister Erna Solberg described reports of the attack as “horrifying” and said it was too early to speculate on the man’s motive. Prime minister-designate Jonas Gahr Støre, who is expected to take office on Thursday, called the assault “a cruel and brutal act”.
