What a fine mess these countries have brought upon themselves.
Via Yahoo: Norwegian police said that they are investigating several cases of sex offenders allegedly abusing children at asylum-seekers’ reception centers in the country. Swedish police, meanwhile, arrested more than a dozen people suspected of planning an attack on a refugee center.
In Norway, the abuse was reported to authorities during the autumn and winter, Axel Wilhelm Due from the National Criminal Investigation Services told The Associated Press without providing figures or details except to say that there were “several” cases.
The incidents included abuse by known sex offenders visiting the reception centers as well as residents of the centers, Due said, adding that police were reviewing every alleged case.
“We are looking very seriously at every individual case, and based on our information it’s very likely that children living in reception centers in Norway have been and are being subjected to sexual abuse,” he said. “But generally there is low criminal activity in and around the reception centers.” Due said that police wouldn’t provide details about the alleged cases at this stage.
Last year, more than 31,000 people applied for asylum in Norway of whom 5,300 were unaccompanied minors.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) announced that 409 people have died this year trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea, and migrant crossings in the first six weeks of 2016 are running at nearly 10 times the rate of the same period last year. IOM says 76,000 people have reached Europe by sea, nearly 2,000 per day, since January 1.
