Norway's call to remove crosses causes backlash
Following heated debate, Norwegian officials have dropped the requirement that any buildings that house refugees remove their religous imagery in order to not offend the newcomers.
The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) announced via a press release on Monday afternoon that it is dropping its requirement that private organizations that house refugees be "religion neutral".
"We will not require that those who run overnight offers for us remove religious symbols after all," UDI wrote.
