Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Bus seats mistaken for burqas by members of anti-immigrant group
A Norwegian anti-immigrant group has been roundly ridiculed after members apparently mistook a photograph of six empty Oslo bus seats posted on its Facebook page for a group of women wearing burqas.

"Tragic", "terrifying" and "disgusting" were among the comments posted by members of the closed Fedrelandet viktigst, or "Fatherland first", group beneath the photograph, according to screenshots on the Norwegian news website Nettavisen.

Other members of the 13,000-strong group, for people "who love Norway and appreciate what our ancestors fought for", wondered whether the non-existent passengers might be carrying bombs or weapons beneath their clothes. "This looks really scary," wrote one. "Should be banned. You can't tell who's underneath. Could be terrorists."

We love norway and everything our ancestors fought for; they fought for the right to stand at the back of the bus and seats must be banned forever.

Didn't their ancestors mainly fight the Swedes?
