Oslo police 'more afraid' of xenophobes than Islamists
Oslo Police are more worried about trouble and street violence from groups like the Soldiers of Odin than militant Islamists, Dagsavisen reported on Monday.
While recruitment to anti-Muslim groups like Stop The Islamization of Norway ( Stopp islamiseringen av Norge - SIAN) appears to have plateaued over the past four to five years, Oslo Police say that "xenophobic groups are springing up like mushrooms online".
There are an estimated 100 Norwegian anti-Islam groups on Facebook with up to 25,000 members and Norway has also recently seen chapters of the Soldiers of Odin pop up in cities nationwide.
