Norweigen newspaper Aftenposten published a report on Monday claiming that Norwegian UN soldiers helped to rescue two Lebanese prisoners who escaped from the Khiam prison in southern Lebanon in 1992.

The Aftenposten report claimed that the prison was Mossad-controlled.

The rescue operation could have jeopardized Norway's role in the UN if it had been discovered at the time, the report suggested.

According to the Norwegian report, author Odd Karsten Tveit describes the rescue operation of the two prisoners in his new book and says that it all happened in the deepest of secrecy.

The prisoners, that found themselves in Norwegian custody in southern Lebanon, could have been taken prisoner, tortured and possibly killed, the Aftenposten report claimed.
