[world politics news]

Immigration Minister Sylvi Listhaug has slammed a journalist for spreading "fake news" to make her looking "evil and cynical" after a he accused her of using a crucifix necklace as a "prop" to promote xenophobia. Former newspaper editor Sven Egil Omdal wrote that he searched a database of over 630 news photos and only found her wearing the cross only twice. Listhaug, a member of the tough-on-immigration Progress Party, countered on Facebook that the cross, a gift from her elderly grandmother meant a lot to her, and showed three photos of her wearing it in 2007 alone.
