New Migration Route: Biking from Russia into Norway

Russia does not allow migrants to cross its border with Norway on foot. And Norway does not allow drivers to enter the country ferrying unauthorized migrants. But where there's a will, there's a way. Migrants are now crossing the border between Russia and Norway on children's bicycles.


The BBC reports that while a whopping 7 migrants used this route in 2014, some 1100 migrants have crossed on bicycle this month.
