Johanne Zhangjia Ihle-Hansen (17) was taken from the Haslum crematorium in Bærum on Wednesday afternoon. Justice Minister Jøran Kallmyr was among the many speakers.

The ceremony began with Eric Clapton’s “Tears in Heaven”, before burial speaker Henrik Syse held a memorial speech for her.

The mother gave a speech for her daughter, while her father sang “Till there was you” by the Beatles.

Justice Minister Jøran Kallmyr (Frp) in his speech called for reconciliation.

“It’s the best way to make sure something like this doesn’t happen again,” he said.

In advance, the Muslim community and members of the mosque were particularly welcome to attend. Committee leader Amna Moammar kept remarks during the funeral on behalf of the mosque. She called Johanne a hero and said she probably averted that more lives were lost that day.

Apart from the Minister of Justice, the Mayor, Lisbeth Hammer Krog (H) also participated from the municipality of Bærum.

Johanne Ihle-Hansen was found dead in her residence at Eiksmarka in Bærum on 10 August. Philip Manshaus, 21, who is her step -brother, is charged with killing her.

Police found Ihle-Hansen dead after arresting Manshaus at the Al-Noor Islamic Center mosque on Skui in Bærum, where he began shooting. No one was injured in the shooting, and Manshaus is charged with terror.
