Terrorist recruiters in Norway....

It appears they are very active in Norway....raising the question of how active they are elsewhere...
The head of Norway's intelligence and security agency believes young, Norwegian muslims are being targeted by militant extremists to carry out terrorist attacks and holy war overseas.

Jørn Holme, chief of The Norwegian Police Security Service (Politiets sikkerhetstjeneste PST), confirmed for the first time on Monday that active recruiting efforts are being carried out by older, militant extremists in Norway.

Holme refused to go into detail, but he told newspaper Aftenposten that intelligence gathering indicates that the terror challenge in Norway has gone beyond extremists' efforts to gain support for terrorist activity abroad.

"We've had reports about older, manipulative Islamic extremists here in the country, who have tried to motivate youth to take part in jihad (holy war) attacks abroad," he told Aftenposten. He said PST is taking the reports seriously.

He wouldn't say how many efforts have been made, how they're carried out or how the extremists come in contact with Norwegian youth. Nor would he say whether PST knows of any successful recruiting efforts. But he confirmed that recruiters are in the country, and active.
