Report says Norwegians abroad pose risk of terror attacks

PanARMENIAN.Net - Norway's intelligence service says the threat of a terrorist attack in the country is growing and that Norwegians involved with al Qaeda-linked groups abroad could pose a threat in other nations, according to the Associated Press.

In the 2013 shopping mall assault by terrorists in Nairobi, Kenya, which killed nearly 70 people, one of the gunmen was identified as Hassan Abdi Dhuhulow, a Norwegian citizen who had returned to his native Somalia in 2010.

In its annual terror assessment report on Tuesday, March 4, Norway's intelligence agency didn't identify the countries where Norwegians present a potential terrorist threat, except to say it isn't Syria.

The agency said that the greatest terror threat in Norway comes from extreme Islamists in and around Oslo, but it did not give further details.
