He was overpowered by members of the mosque before police arrived, the mosque director said.

Norwegian media reported on Saturday that the suspect was believed to have praised the Christchurch, New Zealand, shooter in an online forum hours before the attack.

The man has been charged with the murder of a woman found dead in his home and is also facing an attempted murder charge in the shooting at Al-Noor Islamic Center in Oslo.

A Norwegian man suspected of killing his stepsister and opening fire at a mosque near Oslo rejects allegations of murder and attempted murder, his lawyer said Monday. The young, white male, carrying several guns, had expressed far-right and anti-immigrant views online, assistant police chief Rune Skjold told reporters at a press conference.

Breivik, who said he was motivated by his hatred of multiculturalism, killed 77 people in gun and bomb attacks in Norway in July 2011, many of them teenagers. Police confirmed that the woman was related to the suspect.

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

Shots were fired in the attack, but nobody at the mosque was killed.

The head of the Al-Noor mosque said only three people had been inside at the time of the attack.

A gunman who opened fire at a mosque in Norway has been arrested.

The attack happened as Muslims around the world were preparing to celebrate Eid al-Adha, the end of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.

They said they had no information about the suspect, other than he was described as "white".

"Nothing indicates that there have been more people involved".

"The terror attack in Baerum is the result of a long-lasting hate of Muslims that has been allowed to spread in Norway, without Norwegian authorities having taken this development seriously", the Muslim organisation Islamic Council Norway said in a statement.
