UN quota refugees had terror links: Norway PST
Several refugees sent to Norway under the UN's quota system turned out to have close links to the terror groups Islamic State (IS) and the al-Nusra Front, Norway's Police Security Service (PST) has revealed.
According to the service, between five and ten of the 1,000 Syrians chosen to go to Norway by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), were discovered to have links to the one of the two terror groups.
"Unfortunately, there are some who try to exploit and abuse the refugee agency," Police Superintendent Svein Erik Molstad told Norway's Dagbladet newspaper. "We have discovered more quota refugees with ties to the al-Nusra front and IS," he said.
