Married 11 Year Old Muslim Girls Seek Asylum In Norway
At least 61 minors were married when they sought asylum in Norway last year, several of whom were under the country’s age of sexual consent.
The youngest was an 11-year-old girl, according to government figures.
At least 10 girls were under the age of 16, which is the age of sexual consent in Norway. Forty-nine girls and two boys were 16 or 17 when they arrived in the country, NRK reported, citing figures from the Norwegian Immigration Directorate (UDI) and the Norwegian Directorate for Children, Youth and Family Affairs (Bufdir). At least two of the girls under the age of 18 were expecting their second child.
