Coming up on 5 minute news. Man armed with bow and arrows kills 5 people in Norway. January 6th committee, subpoenas, former Justice Department lawyer. And WHO says it may be last chance to find origins of COVID-19. It's Thursday, October 14th. I'm Anthony Davis. A Danish citizen in his 30s has been charged over the fatal bow and arrow attack in Norway police have said. The man fired at shoppers in a small Norwegian town on Wednesday, killing 5 people before he was arrested, authorities said. The police chief in the community of kongsberg near the capital of Oslo said there was a confrontation between officers and the assailant, but he did not elaborate. Two other people were wounded in hospitalized in intensive care, including an officer who was off duty and inside the shop where the attack took place police said. Acting prime minister erna Solberg described the attack as gruesome and said it was too early to speculate on a motive. Police were alerted to the attack around 6 15 p.m. and arrested the suspect about 30 minutes later. The community of some 26,000 inhabitants is about 41 miles southwest of Oslo. According to police, the suspect walked around downtown kongsberg shooting arrows. Police declined to comment on reports that the man used to crossbow, saying only there were several crime scenes. The attack comes over a decade after Anders behring Breivik a right wing extremist set off a bomb in Oslo's government district, and then carried out a shooting massacre at the summer camp of the left wing Labor Party's youth organization on new Toya island. The violence on July 22nd, 2011, killed 77 people and stunned Norway. The House committee investigating the January 6th riot at the U.S. capitol issued a subpoena on Wednesday to a former Justice Department lawyer, who positioned himself as an ally of president Donald Trump and aided Trump's efforts to challenge the results of the presidential election. The committee on Wednesday said to demanded documents and testimony from Jeffrey Clark, a former assistant attorney general, who lent a sympathetic ear to the president's baseless claims that the election results were fraudulent. Clark clashed with superiors during the tumultuous final weeks of the Trump administration, including during a dramatic White House meeting. The subpoena comes one week after the release of a Senate Judiciary Committee report that documented extraordinary tensions within the senior ranks of the Justice Department in December and January, as Trump and allies prodded the law enforcement agency to aid in efforts to undo the election won by Democrat Joe Biden. Trump's own attorney general William Barr had said the Justice Department found no evidence of widespread fraud that could have overturned the results. Unsubstantiated claims of fraud have been repeatedly rejected by judge after judge, including by Trump appointees and by election officials across the country. Meanwhile, The White House, once again, has said it wouldn't support former president Trump's assertion of executive privilege over a tranche of records related to the insurrection and ordered the national archives to turn over documents to congressional investigators within 30 days. President Joe Biden concluded that Trump's efforts to shield the documents was not in the best interests of the United States White House counsel done a remus said in an October 8 letter to the national archives. Meanwhile, at least three of the officials involved in organizing and running the rally that preceded the violent storming of the capital, a handing over documents in response to subpoenas. The 11 organizers and staffers were given a Wednesday deadline to turn over documents and records as part of the committee's investigation into the deadly insurrection that marks the most serious breach of the capital building, since the war of 1812. The World Health Organization said on Wednesday, its newly formed advisory group on dangerous pathogens may be our last chance to determine the origins of the SARS CoV-2 virus and urged China to provide data from early cases. The first human cases of COVID-19 were reported in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019. China has repeatedly dismissed theories that the virus leaked from one of its laboratories and has said no more visits are needed. A WHO team spent four weeks in and around Wuhan earlier this year with Chinese scientists and said in a joint report in March that the virus had probably been transmitted from bats to humans through another animal, but further research was needed. The WHO director general has said the investigation was hampered by a dearth of raw data, pertaining to the first days of the outbreak and has called for lab audits. Reported Chinese testing for antibodies in Wuhan residents in 2019 will be absolutely critical to understanding the virus's origins. The WHO in an editorial in science said that detailed investigations of the earliest known and suspected cases in China prior to December 2019 were still needed, including analysis of stored blood samples from 2019 in Wuhan and retrospective searches of hospital and mortality
