Norwegian intelligence chief: group from Syria en route to commit terror in West

The head analyst of Norway's intelligence agency says a group of people is en route from Syria "to carry out an act of terror in the West," adding that Norway has been "concretely named" as the target.

Jon Fitje Hoffmann spoke in a live interview with Norwegian broadcaster TV2 on Friday but didn't elaborate further. He was not immediately available for further comment.

However, Hans-Joergen Bonnichsen, former operational head of Denmark's intelligence agency, told the AP such information always could be disinformation because those who discuss such plans likely want others to hear.

PST said Thursday it had information about an imminent "concrete threat" based on "reliable information." The threat was unspecific about what the target might be, or when or where an attack could take place.
