Norway prison to send imam to Muslim inmates
A Norwegian prison is to bring in a local imam to prevent Muslim inmates becoming radicalised in the same way as the young Dane who carried out brutal twin attacks in Copenhagen over the weekend.
Ringerike prison near Oslo, which long operated Norway's only high-risk wing, said it planned to run seminars and philosophy groups to help young Muslims explore their faith.
"We are now about to enter into a partnership with an imam who will conduct seminars for Muslims," Prison governor Håkon Melvold told VG newspaper. "In addition, we will create philosophy groups with participation from various faiths."
