KONGSBERG, Norway (AP) — Police say a Danish man suspected of a bow-and-arrow attack on a small Norwegian town that killed five people and wounded two others is a Muslim convert who was previously flagged as having been radicalized.

Police chief Ole B. Saeverud told a news conference that the motive for the attack has not yet been determined, however.
