Norway officials: Bow-and-arrow attack appears act of terror

KONGSBERG, Norway (AP) — Norway’s domestic security agency says a bow-and-arrow attack that killed five people appears to have been an act of terrorism. A 37-year-old Danish man has been arrested as the suspect in the Wednesday night attack in Kongsberg. Mass killings are rare in Norway, and the attack drew immediate comparisons with when a right-wing domestic extremist killed 77 people with a bomb, a rifle and a pistol a decade ago. Police said Thursday that officers made contact with the suspect in Wednesday’s attack but he initially escaped and killed some, if not all, of the victims after that. The victims were four women and one man between the ages of 50 and 70.
