"We consider the threat from right-wing milieus to be increasing. The asylum issue is fuelling right-wing activity, radicalisation and recruitment… Several reception centres for asylum-seekers in Norway were subjected to arson or other acts of sabotage in 2015. It is considered likely that further action will be attempted against these centres in 2016," the security service warned in the report.
It was added in the report that Islamist extremism was the greatest terrorist threat to Norwegian interests and radicals could potentially carry out terror attacks in Norway in 2016.
The European countries are currently struggling to manage a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of people leaving conflict-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa to apply for asylum in stable and prosperous European states, such as Norway.
The most notorious terrorist attack in Norway, which was driven by far-right extremism, took place in 2011, when Anders Breivik killed 77 people and injured more than 150 others. Breivik said that his attack was motivated by the increasing number of migrants in the country and the authorities bear responsibilities for such state of affairs.
