OSLO- Hundreds of Norwegian Muslims are expected to form a human ring around Oslo's synagogue on Saturday, showing solidarity with the city's Jewish community a week after a gunman attacked a synagogue in neighboring Denmark.

Organizers of the event, who say Islam seeks to protect all people, regardless of their religion, expect more than 2,000 people to join the symbolic "ring of peace."

The show of support comes after Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein, a Danish-born son of Palestinian immigrants, killed two people at a synagogue and an event promoting free speech in Copenhagen last weekend. He was eventually killed by police in a shootout.
