Norwegian authorities say they are investigating a Norwegian citizen of Somali origin who is suspected of involvement in the terror attack on a mall in Kenya last month.
The Somali Islamic group al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the assault and said it was in retaliation for Kenya's sending of troops into neighboring Somalia.
PST said its agents were in Nairobi, working with Kenyan authorities investigating "to what degree" the Norwegian was involved and his links to al-Shabab. But the agency said the main goal of the investigation was to prevent any future attacks.
