Two suspects in an alleged plot to attack the US or Israeli Embassy can be held in jail for four weeks while police finish their investigation, an appeals court ruled Wednesday.
The suspects were among four men arrested last week on suspicion of firing gunshots at Norway's main Jewish synagogue on Sept. 17. No one was hurt in the attack, in which about a dozen shots were fired at the building before dawn.
The charges against all four men were elevated to plotting terrorism, based on a police recording of two of them talking about ways to attack either the US or Israeli embassy.
All deny the charges, and their attorneys say there is no evidence their clients took any steps to prepare an attack.
