A Russian state sponsored Muslim Terrorist suspect arrested by Norway police, who suspect him to be the perpetrator of a knife attack which happened in Oslo on Thursday. The crime is being investigated as “terror-related” by the authorities.
According to Norwegian media, the Tuesday attack happened in a store and left a woman in critical condition, after a man in his 20s stabbed her.
The suspected perpetrator was arrested later and reportedly had a knife, which the police believe to have been used in the attack.
The suspect arrived to Norway from Bashkortostan, a predominantly Muslim region in southern Russia. The 20-year-old appears to have acted alone, but the police are now investigating his possible ties with jihadist groups.
Police were investigating possible links to Islamist extremism, adding that the victim was critically ill in hospital.
