Police: Increased vigilance after Vienna attack

On Monday night, the police in Oslo followed the development of the terrorist attack in Vienna up against the security around the synagogue in Oslo.

On Friday, the Police Security Service wrote that they consider that the threat of terror from extreme Islamists in Norway has intensified from the last assessment this summer. The threat level is still moderate, but according to PST, it will take little before the assessment of the expected threat will be changed to probable.

The police in Oslo on Monday night referred to the threat assessment and informed NTB that they are following the attack in Vienna on an ongoing basis.

– The synagogue in Oslo is an object with which the police already have a good dialogue in everyday life. We assess the situation continuously and have increased our vigilance towards vulnerable objects, says operations manager Line Skott.

In Copenhagen, Danish police blocked off several streets around the city’s synagogues already while the attack in Vienna was taking place. Skott will not comment on what specific measures the police have taken in connection with the attack in Austria.

In its adjustment, PST refers, among other things, to the heated situation after a new dispute over the Muhammad caricatures in France.

– PST sharpened our assessment of the threat picture in Norway just before the weekend. Our assessment of the terrorist threat in Norway has not changed after what happened in Vienna tonight, information manager Trond Hugubakken told NTB late Monday night.

He states that it is up to the individual police district to comment on whether changes have been introduced to security after the attack in Vienna.
