Norway was terrorists’ target / News / The Foreigner

Norway was terrorists’ target. The Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) believes the three indicted terrorists were planning to attack Norway. Earlier this year, the men had bought everything necessary to make an explosive device. They’d tried to obtain hydrogen peroxide from a pharmacy but were told it had to be ordered, reports VG. The PST’s theory the three were planning a terrorist attack was confirmed when they returned to the pharmacy to pick up the non-lethal substance, which police had switched in the meantime.

Earlier this year, the men had bought everything necessary to make an explosive device. They’d tried to obtain hydrogen peroxide from a pharmacy but were told it had to be ordered, reports VG.

The PST’s theory the three were planning a terrorist attack was confirmed when they returned to the pharmacy to pick up the non-lethal substance, which police had switched in the meantime.

The materials were found in the arrested 39-year-old Uyghur’s apartment near Ullevål University Hospital (UUS) and, according to the PST, were enough to make a large or several smaller bombs.

Investigations revealed al-Qaida’s attack was to take place on Norwegian soil for the first time ever, instead of abroad as police originally thought.

The target had not been chosen yet, according to VG.
