The suspected gunman, Philip Manshaus, 21, accused of an attempted terrorist attack at the mosque appeared before the court in Norway with two black eyes.
Reportedly his facial bruising was sustained in the desperate fight inside the mosque as Mohamed Rafiq managed to disarm the assailant as he begun to fire his weapon.
The accused is also alleged to have killed his teenage stepsister before targeting the Al-Noor Islamic Centre in the Oslo suburb of Baerum.
Reportedly, prosecutors have now asked for him to be held on terror charges for four weeks.
Accordingto the police, Manshaus had hoped to kill with reports suggesting he had entered the building with at least two rifles and wearing body armour.
Not all superheroes wear a cape! Social media users are hailing Muhammad Rafiq as a hero for seizing the attacker, taking his weapons from him and saving many precious lives.

Not all superheroes are beardless, young, wear fancy costumes and caps. Some are old, bearded, strong, brave and wear Desi Turbans.
