NORWAY, 14 OKT: A man using a bow and arrow killed several people and wounded others in attacks in the Norwegian town of Kongsberg on Wednesday (October 13), local police said.

Police said the man had been apprehended and that several were injured and dead, but did not comment on the number of casualties.

The attacks took place over “a large area” of Kongsberg, a municipality of about 28,000 people in southeastern Norway, 68 km (42 miles) from the capital, Oslo.

Following the attacks, the police directorate said it had immediately ordered officers nationwide to carry firearms. Norwegian police are normally unarmed but officers have access to guns and rifles when needed.

Norway’s minister of justice and public security, Monica Maeland, has received updates on the attacks and was closely monitoring the situation, the ministry said.
