The startling information appears in an unpublished report by the Defence Research Establishment (FFI) that AP has access to.The report is authored by Stig Jarle Hansen, a world leader in Somalia experts. 

Pst confirmed to AP that the former soldier in His Majesty the King’s Guard was killed in combat in March of this year.

– PST knows that the person earlier this year were killed in fighting in Somalia. There is reason to wonder why a seemingly well-integrated Norwegian citizen traveling to Somalia to join a terrorist organization, says communications director Trond Hugubakken the Police Security Service (PST).

27-year-old is the first known Norwegian citizen who has been killed in fighting for a terrorist organization. He died in March this year, allegedly in a battle with Somali government forces.

In 2005 and 2006 he served with the military service of His Majesty the King’s Guard.

– We have the media been informed that a named civilian has been killed in Somalia. We are also aware that he – like many others – have completed their military service in the Armed Forces a few years back, said Lt. Col. Bent-Ivan Myhre spokesman of the Armed Forces.

    The LeftyLib Norwegian government should give the Somali a full military funeral with honours, as he was once a King’s Guard.
