Kidnap victim’s hair found

Police say they’ve started a new search for 26 year-old Faiza Ashraf, after finding strands of her hair at the bus stop from where she was abducted.

Two men aged 28 and 25 have been taken into custody suspected to be behind Ashraf’s kidnapping. Police are no nearer solving the case.

Ashraf was kidnapped from a bus stop outside a Prix shop on Fosseveien in Høvik in Bærum municipality on 03 February.

Muslim spokesman fears radical Islam repercussions

A spokesman for Norway’s Islamic community has urged young Muslims not to listen to radical and extreme views expressed on the Internet.

“This represents the most extremist point of view. It’s important that young Muslims follow traditional Islam and a form of western Islam instead,” Mohammad Usman Rana tells Aftenposten after last Friday’s demonstration in Oslo.

Rana’s request comes in the wake of Mohyeldeen Mohammed’s appeal, warning of connections between the terror attacks on New York and London and possible similar repercussions in Norway.

The Norwegian navy has announced that the two marine commandoes involved in the Skah/Hopstock affair will not be facing disciplinary proceedings.

“The Navy views it as extremely grave that this category of personnel in particular engages in activities that may damage its reputation and trust in society,” Inspector General Rear Admiral Haakon Bruun-Hanssen – the Navy’s head man – tells NRK
