Norway's asylum policies 'Europe's strictest'
Norway's leading refugee charity has accused the government of "a race to the bottom" on asylum after a politician claimed that new asylum reforms gave the country "the strictest asylum policy in Europe".
Jan Egeland, Secretary General of the Norwegian Refugee Council, made his protest over Twitter after comments by Per Sandberg, deputy leader of the Progress Party.
The asylum reforms agreed in Norway's parliament on Thursday have been widely seen as a victory for the anti-immigrant Progress party, the junior partner in Norway's ruling coalition.
