A man wielding a knife hijacked a bus in western Norway and killed three people on board, police say.

The suspect, in his 50s and of foreign origin, has been arrested, police told the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation.

The victims – one woman and two men – included the bus driver. There were no immediate details of other casualties.

The man was overpowered by firefighters who rushed to the scene of what was initially reported as a traffic accident, police said.

The attack took place around 17:30 local time (16:30 GMT) on a remote mountain road near Ardal, about 220km (135 miles) north-west of Oslo.

“For now, I have no information to indicate there was anyone else than the three victims” on the bus, police officer Joern Lasse Foerde Refsnes told TV2 news channel.
