A man has been arrested in Norway after a shooting inside a mosque left one person injured.

Police say a gunman opened fire on the Al‑Noor Islamic Centre, near the capital Oslo.

The suspect has not been named, but police have described him as a "young white man".

The mosque's director told local media that the victim was a 75‑year‑old member of the congregation.

He later told local channel TV2 that the attacker had "carried two shotgun‑like weapons and a pistol. He broke through a glass door and fired shots."

The gunman, who wore body armour, was overpowered by people at the mosque before police arrived at the scene.

The mosque had previously implemented extra security measures after a gunman killed 51 people at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.
