The Norwegian prosecution has demanded to sentence Philip Manshaus, who attacked a mosque and killed his step-sister last August, to the maximum 21 years in prison, as the trial of the attacker is expected to conclude later in the day, media reported.
The shooting took place at a mosque in the Baerum municipality near Oslo. One person was injured. Afterward, several weapons were reportedly discovered in the mosque. Later, law enforcement officers found the dead body of Manshaus' step-sister, a Chinese adoptee, who is said to have been killed because of her race.
Manshaus did not dispute the criminal acts themselves, but pleaded not guilty, citing the right to break the law due to force majeure circumstances.
