OSLO - Norwegian security police are seeking charges against three men suspected of planning Scandinavian bomb attacks in an alleged plot with possible al-Qaida connections, state broadcaster NRK reported on Friday.

After their arrest last July the three told different stories -- one admitting a plot to blow up China's embassy in Norway, one saying his target was a Danish newspaper that printed cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad, and one professing his innocence.

The Norwegian Police Security Service had no immediate comment when contacted by Reuters on Friday, and NRK did not say what charges the service proposed in a recommendation to Norway's prosecuting authority.
