Diligence is the ‘watch word’ for Scandanavia. Though Finland is not named in the report, all of Scandanavia is on the alert for terrorist activity. Seeing that Finland is involved with security cooperation between the Nordic countries, it stands to reason that the Finnish government is likewise tightening up its security and being on the lookout for suspected terrorists.
This factor alone is reason enough to believe that Finland is a potential target as well. Lets hope that the Nordic countries are successful in their prevention capabilities, for all of our sakes. KGS
