Detention of the perpetrator of the "terrorist" attack on a mosque in Norway

Oslo - An Oslo court on Monday ordered the arrest of a bomber in a mosque on the outskirts of Oslo on charges of "terrorist act" and "murder". His eyes are beating effects.

Philippe Manhouse, 21, rejects the charges against him and has demanded his release.

Manhouse's face and hands appeared during his first public appearance Monday at the Oslo court, bruises and scratches resulting from his clash with people at the mosque that they managed to control until police arrived.

At the end of the closed hearing, the judge ordered that he be held in custody for four weeks, in solitary confinement for the first two weeks.

Manhouse asked for his release, his lawyer Unni Fries said. "He rejects the accusations and exercises his right not to give any explanation," she told the press after the closed-door session.

Philip Manhouse opened fire Saturday afternoon at the Nur Mosque in Bayrum, a residential suburb of Oslo.

He was controlled by one of the three people present at the time of the attack, despite having two firearms with him. The 65-year-old man threw himself lightly.

The man was identified in the local media as a former Pakistani army officer.

On Monday, police said they had possession of a video of the events, taken through a GoPro camera that was planted on a helmet worn by the attacker.

Manhaus is also accused of having earlier killed his half-sister, whose body was found hours after the shooting.

Local media reported that his half-sister, who was found dead in the suspect's house, was of Chinese origin and was adopted by the current wife of the suspect's father. She said her name was Johan Zhangjia Ely-Hansen.

Norwegian internal intelligence services said Monday that they had information about the young man for "about a year." "The young man was somewhat mysterious and was not in a position to suggest that he was about to carry out a terrorist act," intelligence chief Hans Safar Sofold told a news conference.

Norwegian internal intelligence services have not changed the level of threat threats in Norway, which is still considered low.

Ahead of the mosque attack, a man using Philip Manhouse's name at the Andshan forum posted a message calling on his readers to bring the "ethnic war" online to real life. He referred to Bertrand Tarrant, who attacked two mosques that killed 51 people in March in Christchurch, New Zealand.

The shooting was part of a renewed assault by white fanatics, especially in the recent past in El Paso, the United States.

The attack sowed fear among the Muslim minority in Norway, which is now celebrating Eid al-Adha, and increased security around the celebrations.

Knowledge and neighbors present in the media a picture of a playful and natural young man whose behavior changed last year.

Public broadcaster NRK said it had become deeply committed to Christianity and may have adopted more radical views.

Norwegian right-wing extremist Anders Bering Breivik, who says he is fighting a "Muslim invasion" on July 22, 2011, killed 77 people by detonating a bomb near Oslo's government headquarters and then by firing at a gathering of youths working on the island of Otoya.
