Norway Terror Suspect Rejects Al-Qaida Link
by Bjoern H. Amland
The accused ringleader of a terror plot in Norway has rejected charges that he conspired with al-Qaida to attack a Danish newspaper, saying he was planning a solo raid against the Chinese Embassy in Oslo.
Mikael Davud, a Chinese Muslim, told the Oslo district court Thursday that his two alleged accomplices helped him acquire bomb-making ingredients but didn't know he was planning an attack.
The trio was arrested in July 2010 in a plot that investigators have linked to the same al-Qaida planners behind thwarted attacks against the New York subway and a British shopping mall in 2009.
