Norwegian police want asylum seekers to be obliged to notify authorities of their location


About 2,000 asylum seekers have disappeared from reception centers in Norway so far this year, and authorities have no clue as to where they are.

Now police want their workload cut, and want asylum seekers to be duty bound to report their location, NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting) reports.

The problem is especially acute with asylum seekers who have had their application rejected, and police hope that such regulations would make it easier to carry out deportation orders.
