The Police Security Service (PST) has arrested a 29-year-old terrorist woman who arrived at Gardermoen late Friday night.

The woman is charged with participation in two terrorist organizations in Syria. She is likely to be detained in custody till Monday.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a press release sent out in the early hours of Saturday that two Norwegian children and their mother have received assistance to return from Syria.

The three were followed on the trip to Norway by personnel from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with the assistance of Norwegian police.

The children must be protected

– “Assistance to return home was provided on a humanitarian basis because we fear the illness of the one child. I am happy that we can now close this demanding consular case. I thank everyone who has contributed to this work,” says Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide (H).

The woman was arrested by the prosecutor’s office immediately upon arriving. The children receive health care and are followed up by the child welfare service, writes the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

– “The children deserve calm and must be protected. I hope this is respected,” says Søreide.

The 29-year-old Norwegian-Pakistani IS-targeted woman and her two children arrived in Norway by plane from Copenhagen late Friday night.

The three arrived at Ullevål hospital in Oslo just after 1:30 pm until Saturday, NRK reports. One of the children was brought in from an ambulance to the Children’s Department. Then the ambulance drove on to the hospital hotel, closely followed by civilian police.

Traveled to Syria in 2013
According to TV 2, the woman was escorted by just under ten people from the plane at Kastrup and to the next flight to Gardermoen.

On Tuesday, it became known that the government had decided to bring home the terrorist-Norwegian Norwegian woman, her five-year-old son and three-year-old daughter.

The woman traveled to an IS-controlled area in Syria in 2013. During her stay, she had two children. She and the children have been interned in the Syrian refugee camp Al Hol northeast of Syria, for about ten months.

The woman and her two children were passengers on a scheduled flight from Arbil in Iraq to Vienna on Friday afternoon. Then the trip to Copenhagen and then on to Oslo.

Both police, child welfare and health personnel were in place at Gardermoen on Friday evening to welcome the woman and her two children.

The case of the small family home retrieval has caused severe dissatisfaction in the Frp, which now threatens to leave the government unless they meet a number of new demands.

The woman’s lawyer Nils Christian Nordhus has notified a press conference after the woman and her children have arrived in Norway.
