    A male suspect has been arrested after he opened fire at a mosque in Norway yesterday.

    According to a Reuters report, police say the armed attack will be investigated as a possible act of terrorism.

    Reporters were told that the suspected shooter at the al-Noor Islamic Centre – a young, white male carrying several guns – had expressed far-right, anti-immigrant views online.

    The shooter was apprehended after the attack, in which shots were fired but no one was injured, with members of the congregation having overpowered him before police arrived.

    The attacker was also suspected of killing one of his family members, a young woman who was found dead at his home.
