Norway Fumes Over Transfer of Aid Funds to Terrorists


Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Espen Barth Eide, in Israel on a visit, expressed anger at the Palestinian Authority after it was revealed that Norwegian and British aid funds were given to Palestinian Arab prisoners who had been found guilty of terrorist acts.

According to reports in the daily "Yisrael Hayom", Norway's examination of the distribution of its aid funds led to the conclusion that the country had been misled by the PA which used them to fund the terrorist prisoners.
