Norway will stop sending migrants that arrived from Arctic Russia by bicycle back across the border in mid-winter on the same mode of transport, local authorities said Thursday.Since then the police had been quietly putting migrants on bicycles back across the Storskog border crossing, 400 kilometers (about 250 miles) north of the Arctic Circle.Bicycles became the preferred mode of transport of migrants seeking to cross into Norway, because Russian authorities do not let people cross the border on foot and Norway considers people driving migrants across the border in a car or truck as human traffickers.
