Norway mosque worshipper recounts encounter with gunman

A worshipper recounted on Sunday (August 11) how he wrestled with a gunman who fired shots into a mosque in Baerum, Norway on Saturday (August 10), in what is now being treated as a potential terrorist attack.

Mohammad Rafiq, who served as an air force officer in Pakistan before moving to Norway where he is now retired, said he heard shots and glass breaking before he confronted the intruder, knocking the weapon out of his hands.

Rafiq explained how he sustained an eye injury as he wrestled the gunman to the ground, restraining him together with other worshippers until armed police arrived on the scene.

Police said on Sunday that the attack was being investigated as a possible terrorist attack.
