Norway says Islamist militants planning attack in West have left Syria
OSLO - A group of militant Islamists planning to carry out attacks in the West is on its way from Syria, possibly heading towards Norway, police said on Friday.

 

Norwegian armed police were deployed for a second day at high-risk locations including airports and train stations, after the police's
intelligence unit said on Thursday it received credible information that an attack might take place in the country in coming days.

 

"We have received information that a group of fighters have left Syria with the aim of carrying out terror attack in the West and Norway was specifically mentioned among their targets," Jon Fitje Hoffmann, the chief analyst for the Police Security Service told TV2 in an interview on Friday.
