The investigation into a bow-and-arrow attack in Norway that left five people dead suggests it was triggered by “illness”, police said Friday.

“The strongest hypothesis after the first days of the investigation is that illness is in the background,” police inspector Per Thomas Omholt told reporters two days after the attack.
