A deadly shooting this weekend in and nearby a gay bar in the Norwegian capital, Olso, just ahead of the city's annual gay Pride festival is being investigated as a terrorist attack.
Two people were killed and 10 wounded in the shooting, which happened in the early hours of Saturday, not long before what was to be the start of the Oslo Pride Parade.
Police in Norway say they're investigating it as a terrorist incident because of the number of dead and injured.
The suspect is a Norwegian citizen originally from Iran.
He was caught at the scene and has been charged with murder, attempted murder and terrorist acts.
The Pride parade was officially canceled, and the police urged people not to come out, but hundreds of people reportedly demonstrated near the scene later in the day.
