A 20-year-old Russian man has been arrested in Norway for stabbing a woman in a supermarket in ‘an act of terrorism’.

The woman was knifed while paying for her groceries in a supermarket in the capital Oslo on Thursday, and remains in critical condition in hospital.

The man was arrested shortly after the attack, upon which he told police it had been an act of terror and that he ‘wanted to kill several people’.

The incident is  being investigated as a possible act of terrorism, the head of the Norwegian police’s security service (PST) said on Friday.

‘The man said under questioning that he wanted to kill several people and that this was an act of terror,’ PST head Marie Benedicte Bjørnland told a news conference.

The suspect had arrived in Oslo on Thursday, travelling from Russia via neighbouring Sweden, she said. There were no other suspects.

Police were investigating possible links to Islamist extremism, Bjørnland said, adding that the victim was critically ill in hospital.
