Police attorney Børge Enoksen said at a press conference that it was a Norwegian citizen in his forties who was known to the police for criminal offenses.

The man is at large abroad – in which country one does not want to comment. They work together with foreign authorities so that the wanted person is arrested.

Two dead and 21 injured

On the night of June 25, an attacker fired shots near a popular gay bar in the Norwegian capital – a Pride parade originally planned for the same weekend was subsequently cancelled. Two people died and 21 others were injured. The attack was classified by the Norwegian secret service as an Islamist terrorist attack – the suspicion of terrorism has been confirmed, Enoksen said on Friday.

Among other things, the police are investigating the theory of whether the crime was explicitly aimed at homosexuals. A Norwegian with Iranian roots was arrested minutes after the first shots were fired. He is in custody, but refuses to testify during interrogations. According to information from the Norwegian broadcasters NRK and TV2 and the newspaper Aftenposten, the man who is now wanted is an Islamist known in Norway who was last in Pakistan. There should have been contact between him and the attacker for a long time before the crime.
