OSLO - An Islamist militant group with ties to Syria may be planning an attack in Norway within days, a top security official warned Thursday.

Benedicte Bjoernland, the head of Norway's Police Security Service, told a news conference that information had been received suggesting "persons related to an extreme [Islamist] group in Syria may be planning to carry out a terrorist act in Norway." She added it could occur "within a short period of time, probably within a few days. But we do not know how, when and in what manner."
