Homegrown Terrorism in Scandinavia

The recent spate of Scandinavian terror-threats have caught the eye of the Jamestown Foundation. They have just published an article that is basically a compilation of recent reports and articles in Scandinavian media: The Danger of Homegrown Terrorism to Scandinavia.

"Denmark, Sweden and Norway have seen a limited presence of "traditional" organized terrorist groups since the beginning of the 1990s, with outfits such as the Algerian GSPC or the Egyptian Gama'a al-Islamiyya using the countries as convenient bases of logistical support for their activities in North Africa and the Middle East. While some of these groups are still operating today, the overwhelming majority of terrorist activities taking place in Scandinavia currently are carried out by homegrown networks."
