“My family and I are appalled by the night’s shooting tragedy in central Oslo, where two people were killed and many injured,” King Harald said on Saturday.
“We sympathize with all relatives of the victims and affected people, and our warm thoughts go out to all those who are now scared, restless, and in grief,” the king said in a statement.
“We must stand together to defend our values: Freedom, diversity, and respect for each other. We must continue to stand up for all people to feel safe,” he added.
A 42-year-old man has been arrested and charged with murder, attempted murder, and terrorist acts after the shooting at several nightclubs in central Oslo on Saturday.
Two people were killed, ten seriously injured, and eleven slightly injured after the shooting. None of the injured have life-threatening injuries, the police stated at a press conference on Saturday morning.
The man, who has been arrested, is a 42-year-old Norwegian citizen with an Iranian background and is known to the police and the Police Security Service (PST) from before.
