Mayor Jan Gaute Bjerke described the violence as “deeply tragic”.

“The municipality staff will help with information and run a crisis management team in coordination with the police,” he said.

The stabbing comes after a defendant in one of the most notorious recent cases of violence in Norway pleaded guilty to a bow-and-arrow and knife rampage that left five people dead and three injured, including an off-duty police officer.

Norwegian police initially investigated the incident as an act of terror, but later concluded that the suspect, a 38-year-old Danish man was suffering from mental illness. His trial is scheduled to last until Jun 22.
