Norway government collapses over IS spouse repatriation spat
"I brought [Norway's right-wing Progress Party] into government, and I'm now taking the party out,"* [Finance Minister Siv] Jensen told a news conference. The move means that Conservative Prime Minister Erna Solberg no longer has a parliamentary majority.
Last week, Norway's Cabinet decided to allow the woman to return to Norway with her two children so that her 5-year-old son could receive medical treatment. The three had been living in the Kurdish-controlled al-Hol refugee camp in Syria.
Countries across Europe have been struggling with whether or not to allow their citizens who left to join the fight in Syria, or marry IS militants, to return home. In November, Germany repatriated a woman suspected of being an IS member along with her three children.
