NORWEGIAN cops have charged a bow and arrow attacker who last night ruthlessly slaughtered four women and one man in a deadly terror attack. Muslim covert Espen Brathen, 37, unleashed a 35 minute killing spree in the town of Kongsberg as cops desperately hunted him down following reports he was randomly spraying arrows at shoppers. The horrific attack unfolded in the small town of Kongsberg, home to about 25,000 people 50 miles west of Oslo after about 6.30pm local time. As well as the five killed, two were wounded. Brathen, a Danish national who lives in the Kongsberg area, has been held in custody after he admitted to being the killer. He was believed to have been acting alone in the terror attack. Today Norway’s domestic security agency, known by its acronym PST, said the incident appeared to have been an act of terrorism. It said in a statement: "The investigation will clarify in more detail what the incidents were motivated by." Police said the Danish man suspected of the attack is a Muslim convert who was previously flagged as having been radicalised.
