Report: Norwegian Al-Qaeda Trainee Poised to Strike

European security sources have warned that a Norwegian man received training from Al-Qaeda in Yemen and is waiting for instructions to carry out terrorism activity against Western targets, according to a Tuesday report by the Associated Press.

Sources in three European intelligence agencies confirmed, in a conversation with the news agency, that the man is "operationally ready", meaning he has completed his training and only needs to receive a target.
