Three men were arrested on Thursday suspected of planning attacks, and of having links to Al Qaeda and to people under investigation in the United States and Britain.
Two of the men were arrested in the Oslo region while a third one was arrested in Germany.
“We believe this group has had links to people abroad who can be linked to Al Qaeda, and to people who are involved in investigations in other countries, among others the United States and Britain,” the Police Security Service (PST) chief Janne Kristiansen said.
Kristiansen did not give details of the plot nor say which country might have been the target of a planned attack.
Five charged in us
On Wednesday, the US charged five men with plotting to bomb New York City’s subway system and attack an unidentified target in Britain under orders from Al Qaeda leaders in Pakistan. And British police on Wednesday arrested a 24-year-old terrorism suspect given leave to stay in Britain after a request from the US government for his extradition.
