Wednesday, 18 May 2022 10:57 PM MYT OSLO, May 18 — A man pleaded guilty today to stabbing five people to death and attempting to murder 11 with a bow and arrow, attacks which spread fear across a small town in Norway in October last year.The rampage through Kongsberg, 70 km west of the capital Oslo, lasted more than half an hour, as the attacker randomly targeted people in their homes, on the streets and in a store while narrowly missing others, prosecutors said.POLICE have arrested a part-time contractor for allegedly abusing a three-year-old boy under his care on Jalan Besar Taman Dagang, Kuala Lumpur, today.The accused, Espen Andersen Braathen, 38, a Dane who has lived his whole life in Norway, suffered from mental illness at the time of the attacks and should be sentenced to psychiatric care, rather than prison, prosecutors said.Effective July 2018, access to full reports will only be available with a subscription.“I plead guilty to all the charges,” Braathen told the court.Effective July 2018, access to full reports will only be available with a subscription.Four women and one man, aged between 52 and 78, were stabbed to death in the Oct.Saarani said that the two hikers reported the incident in Tanjung Rambutan, Perak.

13 attacks, while three were wounded by Braathen’s arrows, according to the charges.Before the stabbings, Braathen spent about 15 minutes shooting arrows at people in a supermarket as well as outside, hitting an off-duty police officer, among others.In addition to the murders and murder attempts, he stands accused of making aggravated threats against 13 people, and one account of attempted bodily harm.Investigators later seized a number of weapons, including knives, arrows, bows and a sword.Police had initially said the attack appeared to be “an act of terror” but later abandoned that theory and said Braathen had suffered from mental illness for years.On Sunday (May 15) two hikers went missing, believed to have been swept away by a water surge while hiking at Gunung Suku near Simpang Pulai.

He has been kept at a psychiatric facility since October.“We hope that we will get answers,” prosecutor Andreas Christiansen told Norwegian private broadcaster TV2 before the trial started.Proceedings in the Kongsberg trial are scheduled to last until June 22.— Reuters Advertisement.
