Norway calls off terror alert, says threat gone
Copenhagen: Norway`s intelligence service says the Scandinavian country no longer faces an imminent terror threat from people with links to Islamic fighters in Syria.
Benedicte Bjoernland, head of Norway`s security service PST, today said new information indicates a terror attack won`t take place now. But she said the overall threat level against Norway remains high.
Bjoernland said the original information that prompted last week`s warning from the Norwegian government of an impending threat, was unspecific about what the target might be, or when or where an attack could take place.
PST said a group of people travelling from Syria to commit terror in the West had named Norway as a target. The government warning led to visible police at border crossings, airports, train stations and places with large crowds.
