Norway’s domestic intelligence service PST, which is responsible for counter-terrorism, said Saturday that it was treating a deadly overnight shooting near a gay bar in Oslo as “an act of Islamist terrorism”.

The suspect who was arrested “has a long history of violence and threats” and has been on the PST’s radar “since 2015 in connection with concerns about his radicalisation” and membership “in an Islamist extremist network,” PST’s chief Roger Berg told a press conference.
