A TERROR probe has been launched after at least five people were killed when a man went on a rampage with a bow and arrow in Norway today.

The unnamed suspect reportedly began firing the weapon into a Co-Op supermarket in the small mining town of Kongsberg – about 80 miles from the capital Oslo. He was later detained by police – who said they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the attack.

This evening, police chief Oeyvind Aas confirmed that they could not rule out terrorism as a motivation for the attack – which happened over a “wide area”.

The top cop also revealed that the suspect was arrested after a “confrontation” with police officers – but said that none of his officers were injured.
