At least ten girls below the Norwegian age of consent came with their husbands to Norway last year, NRK reported.
Figures NRK has acquired from the Immigration Department (UDI) and Children, Youth and Family Affairs (Bufdir) show that at least 61 minors were married when they came to Norway as asylum seekers last year.
At least ten girls were under 16.
49 girls and two boys were 16-17 years old.
At least two of the girls under 18 years are expecting a baby number two.
