Terror financing arrests in Norway.

Terrorism: Via Aftenposten.

The three arrested for alleged terrorist financing are tied to the Somalian community in Oslo, reported Aftenposten.no.

Norway's national security police PST, the state crime unit Kripos, Norway's white-collar crime unit ├śkokrim and the tax authority for eastern Norway all took part in the arrests.

The three suspects face a court hearing on remand custody either Friday or Saturday, said PST spokesman Martin Bernsen.

The PST also confirmed that it had coordinated its arrests in Oslo with Swedish police, who arrested three other men in Stockholm Thursday morning, also on charges of financing terrorism and planning terrorist activities.

The three arrested in Stockholm are all Swedish citizens, but come from Somalia as well and are charged with having financed terrorist activities in their homeland.
