OSLO, Oct 14 (Reuters) – The man suspected of killing 5 individuals in a bow-and-arrow assault in Norway had converted to Islam and police had been anxious over indicators of his radicalisation, regional police chief Ole Bredrup Saeverud instructed a news convention on Thursday.

A 37-year-old Danish citizen is suspected of finishing up the assaults, police have mentioned. He is in custody and is believed to have acted alone.
