The Kongsberg city council has set up a reception center for those affected and mobilized a crisis team to deal with the situation.
Kylian Mbappe spoke to L’Equipe about everything to do with his current situation, Paris Saint-Germain, arguing with Neymar and the arrival of Lionel Messi in France.
“I asked to leave in July,” he confirmed again, having told RAC1 the same on Monday about his desire to join Real Madrid.
For Mbappe, the arrival of Messi was a big surprise. “I never imagined him coming here,” he said. “He’s one of the few players I thought would be impossible to play alongside.
For me, he was never going to leave Barcelona I savour every moment with him. We should never forget that it’s still a privilege.”
“It’s a tragedy, it’s horrible. You don’t think something like this could happen in Kongsberg,” said Kari Anne Sand, mayor of this town of about 28,000 inhabitants, 68 kilometers from the capital, Oslo.
Norway, a generally peaceful country, has been the scene of far-right attacks in the past. On July 22, 2011, Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 people by detonating a bomb near the government headquarters in Oslo, before opening fire at a Labor Youth rally on the island of Utøya.
In August 2019, Philip Manshaus fired at a mosque on the outskirts of Oslo, before being subdued by the crowd, without seriously injuring himself. Before the attack he shot down his adopted Asian sister for racism.
The authorities have also thwarted several Islamist attacks.
