OSLO, June 27 (Reuters) - Norwegian police said on Monday all Pride events across the country should be delayed, citing security concerns after a deadly weekend rampage by a gunman at a gay bar in Oslo.

Police also urged Pride events nationwide to be cancelled, citing information from Norway's police intelligence service, PST, without giving details.

Pride events should be delayed "until further notice", since the queer community is considered part of the "enemy" by extremist Islamists, National Police Chief Benedicte Bjoernland said in a statement.

"We are sorry that once again we have to say that a Pride event must be cancelled," it said in a statement.

Oslo's district court on Monday named the suspect in the attack as Zaniar Matapour, a 43-year-old Norwegian citizen of Iranian origin.

He will undergo a psychiatric evaluation as part of that, police said.
