On the same day Norway’s intelligence service (PST) said hardline Islamists remained the foremost threat to national security, leading government officials and the royal family have been singled out
in a threatening online video.
A link to the video was posted in the early hours of Tuesday morning by a Facebook group with 1,600 members called Demonstration: Norwegian soldiers out of Afghanistan. The group’s aim is to gather protesters for a rally outside the Oslo parliament this Friday.
In the video, images of Crown Prince Haakon, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre are accompanied by a song in Arabic that contains the words: “Oh Allah, destroy them, and let it be painful”.
The clip, which is just over four minutes long, also features pictures of Norwegian soldiers and injured children. It ends with the sound of an explosion and a picture of a Norwegian vehicle in flames.
