Refugees raise far-right threat: Norway intel
The biggest risk posed to Norway's national security by the influx of migrants is a possible violent reaction from the far-right, and not the infiltration of Islamists, Norway's intelligence service said Thursday.
"Asylum seekers linked to radical Islam are not a main concern to the PST in the short-term," intelligence service PST said in a statement.
"The increasing flow of asylum seekers in Norway could, first and foremost, have negative consequences on threats linked to far-right circles in Norway. This is because hostility to immigration is one of the main issues, and an important mobilising factor, for these circles," it said.
