Norway government turmoil over jihad

Norway Progress Party announced it was leaving the right-wing coalition government over the repatriation of an alleged Islamic State member and her two children last week.

We don’t compromise with people who have voluntarily joined terror organisations,” party leader Siv Jensen told reporters in Oslo.

We don’t get enough of the Progress Party’s policies through,” Jensen added.

Without the Progress Party, the coalition, headed by Prime Minister Erna Solberg, loses its majority in parliament, but she will still remain in charge.

While announcing her party’s decision, Jensen said it was “natural” that Solberg would remain Prime minister.

The 29-year-old Norwegian woman of Pakistani origin, was married to an Islamic State fighter.

The Progress Party had been in favour of bringing back the children but opposed her return, but all of them the mothere and her two children were repatriated to Norway on humanitarian grounds. The other three parties making up the coalition government ignored the objections of Progress Party and approved it.

The woman is accused of being a member of both the Al-Nusra Front and the Islamic State and was arrested by arrival.

Her five-year-old son and three-year-old daughter, born to different jihadist fighters, have been hospitalised.

Oslo ambulance attack

An armed man stole an ambulance, drove away and hit some people. We got him now,” a police spokesperson said.

The largest national newspaper Aftenposten published a photo showing a man, wearing green trousers, lying next to the vehicle surrounded by police officers.

A witness told the newspaper that he saw “the ambulance driving at high speed toward me … and right behind a police car.”

The assaillant injured three people including two babies when he drove off and hit a family, Norwegian police and hospital officials have said.

Two babies were injured after the hijacked ambulance hit a family. They are twins, seven months old, and they are being treated,the University hospital spokesman said.

Police officers are searching for a second suspect, a woman, over the theft of the ambulance. They also underlined that nothing indicates it was a terrorist attack: an armed man stole an ambulance and attempted to drive away.
