Court in Oslo extends arrest of Ingushetia's native

The arrest of the 17-year-old native from Ingushetia, accused of storing a bomb and attempting to blow it up, has been extended until the end of October, said his advocate Zhavid Shakh. The defendant insists on his innocence.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the Russian citizen was detained in Oslo on April 8. Norwegian law enforcers reported that they found an explosive device on him.

Today, based on the seriousness of the charge, the cassation court in Oslo has ruled to extend the arrest, said the advocate.

The native of Ingushetia was detained after a call to the police from a man, who thought that he was a drug dealer; however, at detention, they found not drugs, but a homemade bomb on him, said Zhavid Shakh. "He watched TV, some entertaining programs; and it occurred to him to make this bomb, but he was not going to commit a terror act," said the advocate.

According to a source from the Chechen Diaspora in Norway, local media reported, with reference to the former coach of the defendant in Greco-Roman wrestling, that the young man "had radicalized."

Earlier, the Norwegian newspaper "Aftenposten" reported that the defendant came from Russia to Norway seven years ago as a refugee.
