Syrian teen arrested in Norway for plotting attack
[TheLocal.no] Norway's intelligence services (PST) said Friday it had arrested a 16-year-old Syrian immigrant suspected of planning an attack on an undisclosed target.
Somewhere in the dark mountains and forests of Norway, a lone wolf jihadi, who might or might not be a frighteningly adult child, plotted dire deeds to be done somewhere else in the mountains and deep forests of Norway.The suspect, who was arrested on Thursday, has been living in Oslo for several years and had begun preparations to carry out his attack, PST front man Trond Hugubakken told AFP.
“Hark!” The lad’s head snapped up in sudden attention. “Cheezit, boyz! It’s da fuzz!”
The rest of the lads of indeterminate age disappeared quickly, as if they had never been, but our lad was caught.
We now return to The Local’s report, such as it is:
"He is suspected of plotting an attack. It’s more serious than the usual cases of participation in or attempted participation in a terrorist organization," he said.
The teen was to appear before a judge on Friday for a detention hearing, which PST was to request be held behind closed doors. No details were provided on the intended target which, according to information provided to AFP, was in Norway.
"He claims he is innocent and will ask to be released. His age is not compatible with a detention order," the suspect’s lawyer Andreas Berg Fevang told AFP.
Assuming he’s one of the few underage migrants who actually is not fully adult, of course.According to the VG newspaper, PST believes that the the teen is an Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling
Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not
supporter who came to Norway as part of a family reunification.
"In recent years we have seen youngsters, including kids as young as 13 or 14, being radicalised in both far-right circles and radical Islamist circles," Hugubakken said.
"It’s a worrying trend."
The PST did not exclude further arrests.
Also on Friday, Norwegian police charged a 30-year-old Norwegian woman of Pak origin, repatriated last year from Syria’s al-Hol camp for humanitarian reasons, with participating in a terrorist organization.
Good. Keep her in jail until she’s convicted and sent to prison.
