Three suspected al-Qaeda members were arrested in Norway. Authorities say the plot was linked to cases in the US and Britain. Two of the men were arrested in the Oslo region. The third was detained in Germany.

Police think they could have ties to people who are being investigated in other countries. The police did not give details of the plot or say which country might have been the target of a planned attack. Norway has troops in Afghanistan as part of a NATO-led mission. It has never had an al Qaeda-led attack on its soil. Following the incident, the country's Prime Minister says the government will continue to fight terror.

Jens Stoltenberg, Norwegian Prime Minister, said, "It's important for the government to fight terror and we have done so for a long time. In Norway, we place great importance on freedom of speech and the freedom to participate in political life. People have the right to different views and ideas and to show this in different ways but we have no tolerance for people using terror to achieve their goals."
