Fear of terror attacks tied to war in Iraq rises in Scandinavia

A majority of Danes fear that terror attacks in Europe would happen in the wake of a U.S.-led war on Iraq, according to an opinion poll published Friday. Nearly 70 percent of 1,113 persons interviewed said they fear terror attacks would take place in Europe, while 17.6 percent didn’t fear terrorist retaliation, according to the poll by the Gfk polling institute for the B.T. newspaper. The remaining 13 percent were undecided. The poll had a margin of error of 3 percent. In neighboring Norway, a survey of 1,000 people for the Directorate for Civil Defense showed that 62 percent thought that Norway would experience a terrorist attack. Thirty-eight percent said they didn’t think that would happen. The survey, conducted Jan. 16-28, had a margin of error of 3.2 percent.
