The intelligence-gathering indicated that a Norwegian or Dutch military installation could be targeted. Norway's military was warned in the past week, reports Dagbladet.

Level Alpha is the same one introduced just before 6pm on the evening of 22 July 2011, upheld until the afternoon of 24 July, according to NTB.

Thursday's decision, which the military refuses to say who took, VG writes, was taken after Norwegian military intelligence had processed the information.

Personnel there and at the Police Security Service (PST) have also been monitoring terror cells abroad believed to have plans of hitting military targets in Norway and other countries.

"This is the lowest level [of four], which doesn't involve anything more than increased watchfulness from our side," press spokesperson Major Vegard Finberg told Stavanger Aftenblad, not specifying whether it concerns matters at home or abroad.

Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg is being informed on a running basis.
