Norway attack: Killer held in medical custody amid mental health investigation

Police believe a bow-and-arrow attack that killed five may have been as a result of mental illness.

Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere visited Kongsberg on FridayA bow-and-arrow attack that killed five people in Norway this week is likely to have been due to the killer's mental illness, police say.Espen Andersen Brathen has admitted going on a killing spree in the small town of Kongsberg on Wednesday.

It was the worst attack in Norway since far-right extremist Anders Breivik massacred 77 people a decade ago.The suspect, a Danish Muslim convert, is now in custody in a medical facility pending a psychiatric evaluation."The strongest hypothesis after the first days of the investigation is that illness is in the background," said police inspector Per Thomas Omholt.

However, police are investigating a range of motives including "anger, revenge, impulse, jihad, illness and provocation", Mr Omholt said.He added that Brathen had admitted to the killings but did not admit guilt.Norwegian town left asking questions after murders

A full psychiatric evaluation is necessary to determine whether Brathen can be held legally responsible for his actions. This could take several months."This indicates that things are not exactly as they should be," said his lawyer, Fredrik Neumann, referring to his client's mental health.

"A complete judicial assessment will clarify that," he told Norwegian daily VG.The head of Norway's PST intelligence service, Hans Sverre Sjovold, said Brathen had been in and out of Norway's healthcare system "for some time".

Brathan was known to PST, which is in charge of Norway's anti-terrorism efforts, but it is as yet unclear why."There were fears linked to radicalisation previously," police official Ole Bredrup Saeverud told reporters.Image source,Image caption,

Warning shots were fired during the arrest, police said.

Norwegian media questioned why it took police more than half an hour to arrest the suspect after the first reports of an attack. Mr Saeverud said it had been a "confusing" situation.Media caption,Norway attack witness: "I heard a distinct thunk sound"
