Norway expects Islamist terrorism attempt
(CNN) -- Norway says it thinks Islamist terror could strike the country within a few days but does not know what the plot is, the country announced Thursday.
The Police Security Service "recently received information that individuals affiliated with an extreme Islamist group in Syria may have the intention of carrying out a terrorist action in Norway," the service said in a statement.
A preliminary investigation strengthened the credibility of the information, the statement said. "We also have information indicating that a terrorist action against Norway is planned to be carried out shortly -- probably in a few days.
"We have no information about who is behind such an attack, how it will be carried out, the target or in what way such an attack will be carried out. ... As the information is not specific and not very concrete but at the same time credible, it is difficult to give advice to the citizens of this country on how to act in this situation."
Security has been increased at airports, train stations, ports and major intersections, according to The Nordic Page, a Norwegian English-language news site.
