(Palestinian?) Man Hijacks Bus in Norway, Kills 3

The BBC is reporting that the 50 year old hijacker of a bus in Norway who killed three people is 'foreign':

A man wielding a knife has hijacked a bus in western Norway and killed three passengers, media reports say.

The suspect, said to be in his 50s and of foreign origin, has been arrested, police told Norway's TV2 news channel.

The victims included the driver of the bus. There were no immediate details of the number of injured.

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

DEBKA is reporting that he's Palestinian. So, terrorism? The caveat here is that witnesses also claim he was drunk.
