Three Men Arrested in Norway for Plotting Terrorist Act

Three men suspected of preparing to mount a terrorist attack were arrested in Norway and Germany on Thursday in what authorities said was an Al Qaeda plot with strands in the United States and Britain.

After a lengthy period of surveillance, the men were taken into custody by police, who had feared that information about the investigation might be revealed by the news media.

Two suspects were arrested in Norway and one in Germany. Their names were not released, but police in Oslo described all three as legal residents of Norway, one a citizen and the others holders of permanent residency cards, Los Angeles Times reports.

The men arrested were a 37-year-old Iraqi, a 31-year-old from Uzbekistan and a Norwegian with a Uighur background, Janne Kristiansen, the head of Norway's Police Security Service, said, according to New York Daily News.

The Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) has cooperated with other unspecified international authorities in this matter, and says their terror investigations are linked to those of the UK and US.

"Norwegian citizens need not be concerned but we’ve seen that over time, the situation in Norway is becoming more like that of countries that have had actual terrorist acts committed, or plans of terror on their soil," said Kristiansen, The Foreigner reports.
