Quotes

Jon Fitje Hoffmann, Chief of Analysis at PST, said to TV 2: "PST has reason to believe that a group of people left Syria with the goal of committing a terror attack in the West. Norway is mentioned specifically. We are working with clarification and verification of the information, but we think the credibility of the information is strengthened."
SAS's head of press, Trine Kromann, said to NTB: "We offered hotel accommodations to those who needed it, but only a few booked into a hotel. We also succeeded re-booking five to ten people back home. The remaining people found solutions by themselves."
Fire-fighter Stig Olsøyen said: "We tried resuscitation with a defibrillator. We did this until the ambulance personnel arrived."
Peter said to The Local:  "Many people have asked me if this trip is my mid-life crisis, but I am simply one of life's nomads. I have a wanderer's spirit. The idea of seeing one view for evermore out of my window saddens me. Life is for living, exploring and having fun. I am not yet old enough for an armchair, pipe and slippers."
