  • One person has been injured in a shooting inside a mosque in Norway and a man has been apprehended police say

A few hours after the Norwegian mosque attack, police discovered the body of a young woman at what they said was the suspect's address.

"There is no doubt that the swift and firm response from the persons inside the mosque stopped the aggressor and prevented further consequences", Skjold said.

Prime Minister Erma Solberg said that working against hate speech was a priority.

Norway's al-Noor Islamic centre shares its name with the worst-affected mosque in the New Zealand attacks.

"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.

After the shooting, police went to his residence and said they found his 17-year-old sister dead.

"He put his finger in my eye", Rafiq told the media.

"I suddenly heard shooting from outside", Rafiq told Reuters.

Other worshippers were grateful for Rafiq's bravery.

"I guarantee that the police are doing everything we can to keep people safe", police spokesman Jan Eirik Thomassen said at a news conference Sunday. He entered the mosque through a glass door brandishing "two shotgun-like weapons and a pistol" and was prepared for battle, wearing armor and a uniform.

Shots were fired, but there were no victims.

The defence did not oppose an open court hearing, the court summary said. But it was unclear if those measures had helped to interrupt the attack.

The State of Qatar expressed Sunday its condemnation and denunciation of a shooting attack that took place inside a mosque in the Norwegian capital Oslo, and led to one injury.

The suspect's lawyer, Unni Fries, said in a brief phone interview on Monday that she could not comment on the case. According to Fries, her client lived in Oslo and was born in 1997.

The man had been known to police before the incident, but according to Skjold he could not be described as someone with a "criminal background".

Before the attempted attack at the Norway mosque, online postings under Manshaus' name emerged expressing support for the shootings at two mosques in New Zealand that left 51 dead and the August 3 massacre in El Paso, Texas, where 22 died.

In his manifesto, the Christchurch attacker wrote that he was inspired Breivik.
