Two people were killed in the horror attack on patrons of the London Pub on the eve of Oslo Pride (Photo: The organisers of this weekend’s Oslo Pride parade have cancelled the event in the wake of a gunman’s deadly attack on a gay nightclub. In the early hours of Saturday, the man opened fire with two weapons, including an automatic gun, on revellers inside and outside the London Pub.

The venue is a popular gay nightclub and bar in the centre of the Norwegian capital. Two people are reported to have been killed and more than 20 were injured in the attack. “Many people were crying and screaming, the injured were screaming, people were distressed and scared – very, very scared,” one man, Marcus Nybakken, told Reuters.

A 42-year-old Norwegian man said to be of Iranian origin was arrested soon after the attack. Police said they are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime related to the Pride celebrations.
