Norway: Neo-Nazi terrorists stole ambulance and run down pedestrians, including twin babies
Two twin babies are among five people who’ve been injured by armed neo-Nazi terrorists who hijacked an ambulance in Oslo.
A 32-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman “known to be a part of the extreme-right” were arrested and charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm, respectively.
During the 15-minute rampage, the terrorists drove off and hit a family, including a woman carrying two 7-month-old twins in a stroller and an elderly couple before the police opened fire and managed to arrest them.
Local reports said the terrorists were stopped when several other ambulances followed, then crashed into the vehicle.
Norweigan media suggested the driver fled the scene on foot, and that he was in possession of a firearm which he aimed at people.
Inside the stolen ambulance, police found a submachine gun, a shotgun and what they said were ‘large amounts’ of narcotics.
“What we see currently, which is extremely serious and regrettable is that the perpetrator, according to witness observations, drove the vehicle up onto the pavement in order to ram random victims,” Deputy Police Chief Johan Fredriksen told a press conference.
Norway has experienced several terrorist attacks by rightwing extremists, including the July 2011 twin attacks by Anders Behring Breivik that left 77 people dead. There have however been no attacks carried out by Muslim terrorists on Norwegian soil.
