Police in Norway will no longer carry guns.
The country has announced that the armament of its police officers, which began in 2014, will cease "as soon as possible" after it was deemed no longer necessary.
Plans to stop issuing officers with guns were announced last November but were postponed after the terror attacks in Paris.
As reported by the Independent last year, the majority of Norway’s police, like forces in Britain, Ireland and Iceland, patrol unarmed and carry guns only under special circumstances.
In the US, where officers are armed at all times, over 1,000 people were killed by police in 2015.
