At least 80 people have left Norway to fight in Syria 

PST

June 25, Oslo: At least 80 foreign fighters have left Norway over the last four years to fight in Syria and Iraq, according to fresh figures from the Secret Police (PST), Aftenposten reported.

However, PST is of the opinion that the actual number is much higher. They also say that 25 of those who left, have returned, while 15 persons are confirmed killed in battle.

In PST’s opinion, foreign fighters who have come back may constitute a potential terrorist threat when they return to Norway, and several are therefore under surveillance.

PST has also apprehended and charged three persons under the anti-terrorism act over the past few weeks.
