Norway warns of 'concrete threat' linked to Syria

OSLO, Norway (AP) - Norway's intelligence service says it has been warned of an imminent "concrete threat" against the nation from people with links to Islamic fighters in Syria.

The head of Norwegian security service PST says the agency has received "reliable information" from a foreign partner about some kind of attack "within days," but she says there's no indication of a specific target.

She says the information involves people who have been fighters in Syria.

According to PST's assessment last month, about 50 people have traveled to Syria from Norway as foreign fighters, half of whom have returned to Norway.
