Terrorists are planning to launch an attack on Norway on Monday of next week, government sources are reported to have said on Friday.
Norway's security police, the PST, fears a terror attack on Monday 28th July, said Norwegian TV channel TV 2.
The government security agency produced a threat evaluation that stated the Muslim holiday of Eid al-fitr, the end of the fasting period Ramadan, is specifically mentioned as the day when a terror attack against Norway might occur. Several independent sources confirm this, TV 2 states.
Officially, PST neither confirms nor rejects the information.
Jon Fitje Hoffmann of PST said on Friday that a group of people are believed to have left Syria, looking to strike against targets in the West for a terror attack. Norway is mentioned as a possible target, according to PST.
