Four suspects in an alleged plot to attack the US or Israeli Embassy in Oslo will remain in jail for another month while police finish their investigaton, a district court ruled Saturday. The men were arrested last month 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 - Arfan Qadeer Bhatti, 29, a Norwegian citizen of Pakistani origin, and 26-year-old Norwegian Andreas Bog Kristiansen - talking about ways to attack either the US or Israeli embassy. All men deny the charges, and their attorneys say there is no evidence their clients took any steps to prepare an attack. The two other suspects were identified as 28-year-old Norwegian-Pakistani Mohammed Adnan Nabi and Ibrahim Ozbabacan, a 28-year-old Norwegian of Turkish origin.
