A day after the U.S. Justice Department announced charges against five Al Qaeda members for the foiled subway terror plot and revealed the attempted suicide bombings were linked to a plan for similar attacks in England, Norwegian officials announced three men were being held for plotting attacks in the Scandinavian country. According to BBC News, "The men - a Uighur from China, an Iraqi and an Uzbek - are said to have ties to al-Qaeda and to be linked to bomb plots in the US and UK... The three, all Norwegian residents, had been under surveillance for a year."
