A 42-year-old man has been arrested and charged with murder, attempted murder and terrorist acts after a shooting in the centre of Norway’s capital, Oslo.
Two people were killed and 21 injured in the overnight attack on a busy nightlife district.
There was gunfire at about 01:00 local time on Saturday, in three locations including a gay bar.
Shots were fired at the London Pub, a popular LGBTQ+ venue, and near the Herr Nilsen jazz club and a pub.
Oslo’s annual Pride parade was due to be held on Saturday, but has been cancelled following police advice.
“We will soon be proud and visible again, but today, we will share our Pride celebrations from home,” a statement on the Oslo Pride website said.
“There is reason to think that this may be a hate crime,” police said in a press conference later on Saturday.
Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere called it a “terrible and deeply shocking attack on innocent people”.
“I saw a man arrive with a bag, he picked up a gun and started to shoot,” journalist Olav Roenneberg of public broadcaster NRK said.
In a Facebook post, the team at the London Pub called the shooting “absolutely horrific and pure evil”.
“Our thoughts go to the dead, injured and relatives,” it added. “All employees… are safe and physically unharmed. Take care of each other during this time.”
