“There could be a lot of theories on who is behind this, but our first suspicions are directed towards al-Qaeda because leaders of the network have, on multiple occasions, put Norway on the list of targets for possible attacks,” Kristian Berg Harpviken, director of the Peace Research Institute in Oslo, said by phone. “Two factors that have contributed to this are Norway’s role in the war on terror and in Afghanistan in particular.”
