Benedicte Bjørnland, 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,” Bjørnland 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.
