OSLO, June 18. /TASS/. A Russian national, who had been residing in Norway since 2003, was killed in eastern Oslo on Tuesday, the Russian embassy in Norway told TASS on Saturday.
The 35 year-old woman, who had a residence permit, had three children - the junior are citizens of Norway and the senior girl is a Russian national. The police detained the woman’s husband - a Norway national coming from Afghanistan.
"We are in close contacts with the police and will follow up closely the investigati8on," the Russian embassy said. "We also follow up the situation with children, consult and assist the relatives of the victim, who live in Russia."
Children are now staying with friends of the deceased, the embassy said.
The police said the woman had been attacked not far from her house as she was returning from Oslo’s airport after a trip to Russia. She was hit several times by a knife, and doctors of the ambulance service, who arrived to the site, could not save her life. Soon afterwards, the police detained the woman’s husband as eyewitnesses had confirmed he was the attacker.
The court arrested the man for four weeks. The suspect denies the crime, though he had confessed during the arrest. Reasons of the crime are not clear yet. The investigation is under way.
