Norway mosque shooting: Man opens fire on Al-Noor Islamic Centre

BBC News (https://www.bbc.com/) - Europe | 10 August 2019


A man has been arrested in Norway after a shooting inside a mosque left one person injured.

Police say a gunman opened fire on the Al-Noor Islamic Centre, near the capital Oslo, on Saturday.

The suspect has not been named, but police have described him as a "young white man".

The mosque's director told local media that the victim was a 75-year-old member of the congregation.

"One of our members has been shot by a white man with a helmet and uniform," Irfan Mushtaq told local newspaper Budstikka.

He later told local channel TV2 that the attacker had "carried two shotgun-like weapons and a pistol. He broke through a glass door and fired shots."

The gunman, who wore body armour, was overpowered by people at the mosque before police arrived at the scene, Mr Mushtaq added.

Oslo Police confirmed the attack on Twitter, saying: "One person is shot. The severity of that person's injuries is unknown. One suspect is arrested".

They said the suspect appears to have acted alone.

Police sources told public broadcaster NRK that several weapons were found inside the mosque, located in the town of Baerum, following the shooting.

The mosque had previously implemented extra security measures after a gunman killed 51 people at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, earlier this year, according to Reuters news agency.

The Norway mosque gunman, accused of killing his 17-year-old step-sister before opening fire at an Islamic centre in Oslo, gave a Nazi salute in court today.


Philip Manshaus, 22, stormed the Al-Noor mosque in an affluent suburb of the city on August 10 before he was overpowered by a 65-year-old worshipper.

One person was injured in the rampage before Mohamed Rafiq heroically apprehended Manshaus.

His step-sister, Johanne Zhangjia Ihle-Hansen, adopted by his father's girlfriend, was later found with three shots to the head at their home. A .22-caliber rifle was found in Manshaus' car

Police official Pal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby previously revealed how Manshaus' explanation and technical evidence, including the lack of a struggle, 'support the version that she (his step-sister) was killed because of what the attacker considers as race, because she was of Asian origin.'

Mr Rafiq was among three people inside when a man burst in with 'two shotgun-like weapons' and wearing a uniform and body armour.

Police said the suspect was waving weapons while inside the mosque but did not specify what type.

After breaking through a glass door, the gunman fired off a number of shots before Mr Rafiq and Mohamed Iqbal, who helped to subdue the suspect, spotted him.   

The retired Pakistani Air Force officer described struggling with the gunman.

Mr Rafiq said: 'He put the finger inside my eye up to there, the whole finger.'

He was the only person injured at the mosque despite multiple gunshots being fired, according to police.

Prime Minister Erna Solberg called the attempted attack a 'direct attack on Norwegian Muslims.'

Manshaus, who is being held in custody pending formal charges, has admitted to the facts but has rejected the 'terrorist act' and 'murder' suspicions against him.

On September 9, at a court hearing to extend his detention in custody, Manshaus raised his arm in a Nazi salute to the assembled media
