Norway Takes Measures Against Possible Terrorist Attacks

Download PDF for this date

Security measures were tightened at Norwegian airports and borders today following reports of a possible Palestinian attack. Norwegian authorities reportedly received the warnings from reliable West German and Iraqi sources. It is believed that a commando group of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command has managed to enter into Norway.

The Israeli Embassy and a prison, possible terrorist targets, have been provided with special armed police protection for nearly a week now. Two Israeli secret service agents charged with complicity in the murder of a Moroccan last year are currently serving out their sentences in the prison.
