Terrorist threat - European citizens

Where does the next terrorism threat come from? According to Norwegian Police Security Service chief Jørn Holme the threat is not from immigrants or asylum seekers, but rather from home-grown second generation immigrants as well as right ring extremists.

"There are many extremist networks that are in fact waging a war against us. This is a very unusual situation that we must learn to live with," Holme said.

Holme said that the task of identifying the small group of extreme Islamists that use or encourage violence was far more difficult than the public imagined and that "sooner or later" Norway, like the rest of Europe, must be prepared for a terrorist attack.
