Three men suspected of planning terrorist acts in Norway remain in custody in Oslo, after prosecutors convinced a local court that they had more evidence to back up their charges.

The court (Oslo tingrett), after hearing the evidence behind closed doors, went along with the prosecutors’ request, and ordered the men held for at least another four weeks in full isolation.

The men were arrested in early July after being under surveillance for months. All are immigrants to Norway and only one is a Norwegian citizen.

The new evidence against the three men wasn’t revealed but reportedly was contained in seven binders packed with documents, six of which were sealed because they held information based on other countries’ investigations.
