Norway: Oslo mosque shooting suspect denies allegations in court

A Norwegian police officer looks on as people gather before morning prayer in Thon Oslofjord hotel in Sandvika Norway on Aug 11 2019

The police later said that the woman was the shooter's stepsister.

Manshaus is formally suspected of murdering his 17-year-old stepsister, and of a "terrorist act" at the Al-Noor mosque on Saturday, allegations he has rejected.

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

A gunman opened fire on the Al-Noor Islamic Centre, on the outskirts of the capital Oslo, on Saturday.

Following the attempted attack on the Mosque, investigators found the body of his 17-year-old stepsister at a different location.

Flowers dedicated to the late stepsister of a suspected killer, who attacked Al-Noor Islamic Centre Mosque, are seen outside their house in Baerum outside Oslo, Norway, on August 12, 2019.

"The prosecuting authority will request that the person charged be remanded in custody for four weeks, with a ban on visits and communication, without access to the media and in solitary confinement", the police said in a statement.

Skjold said the alleged gunman was prepared to cause deaths and more injuries at the Al-Noor Islamic Center and didn't succeed because of the "great courage" of people inside the mosque.

Local media said she was of Chinese origin and had been adopted by the companion of Manshaus' father.

The Norwegian police security service, PST, said yesterday that it had received a tipoff about Manshaus previous year, but did not investigate further.

Norwegian police said they had been in contact with the Oslo mosque attack suspect prior to Saturday's shooting amid concerns over what he was posting online.

A suspect involved in the Oslo mosque shooting has been arrested.

Norwegian police are treating the case as a possible act of terrorism, assistant chief of police Rune Skjold told a news conference on Sunday.

The post ended with the words "Valhalla awaits", a mythological Norse reference to the afterlife for those who have died in battle.

The shooting follows a rise in white supremacist attacks, including the recent El Paso massacre in the United States.

Anders Breivik, who espoused White nationalist views, killed 77 people more than eight years ago in attacks in Oslo and at a youth-summer camp.

According to reports, only three people were inside at the time.

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg said Sunday that while her government was trying to combat hate speech, more must be done.
