    "Norway's intelligence service said Thursday it has received information about an imminent "concrete threat" against Norway from people with links to Islamic fighters in Syria.

    Benedicte Bjoernland, the head of Norwegian security service PST, said the agency has received "reliable information" from a foreign partner about some kind of attack "within days." She declined to identify the source.

    "It was unspecific about what the target might be," Bjoernland said, adding PST has no information about how or when such an attack would take place.

    According to PST's assessment last month, about 50 people have traveled to Syria from Norway as foreign fighters, half of whom have now returned to Norway.

    The domestic intelligence agency could not exclude that people involved with the threat already were in Norway".

    "We have information indicating that a terrorist action against Norway is planned to be carried out shortly, probably within days," Benedicte Bjoernland, the director of the Police Security Service, the police's intelligence unit, said.

    She said police had no information about the target or the nature of the planned attack so armed police, an unusual sight in Norway, would be deployed in places considered high risk.

    Prime Minister Erna Solberg, who was informed of the threat late on Wednesday, delayed her holiday plans and would stay in Oslo while police mobilized both uniformed and undercover units, summoning many off-duty officers to work.

    "It's most likely that there are foreign fighters involved, in which case we are talking about a small group, considering our knowledge of groups in Syria," Atle Mesoey, a security researcher at Norwegian University of Life Sciences, said.

    "If police come out into the public with such a threat, it is highly credible, clearly," he said."

    Australia has Muslims, young men that have also gone to fight with ISIS. Ones that were not born here will probably have their passports cancelled. There are a lot of ones born in Australia too. Reports have come through that 2 have been killed in the fighting. The problem is they may want to carry on their activities when they get back here. JMOO
