Moroccan 'heroes' living abroad sent back 464.5 billion dirhams (41.46 billion euros) to the old country between 2000 and 2010. This is Morocco's second largest source of foreign currency earnings after tourism. In 2010 it accounted for 9% of Moroccan GDP in 2010. The principal countries of residence for Moroccans resident abroad are: France, Spain and Italy.

Recall that Labour's Deputy Leader Harriet Harman praised immigrants who sent some of their benefits home as "heroes".
Harriet Harman has praised ‘heroic’ immigrants who claim welfare payments in Britain and use the cash to support families living abroad.

Will "cut up a bus driver"

This underaged gang will "cut up a bus driver to see what he looks on the inside"

They have been terrorising bus drivers and the public in Kristiansand, Norway, robbing eight buses, and one bank, in addition to other violence.

The gang has for a period been spread around the country to improve their ways of thinking, and are now back in Kristiansand, where the bus drivers say they will take action themselves if this gang is not punished and stopped.

The latest robbery by this gang, took place on New Year's Eve.

The bus drivers are devastated. As are their families. Their children ask "Dad, are you coming home tonight?"

Thoresen of the stately "Project respect" is happy with the following up of the underaged gang.

During the year when they stayed in instutions around the country, they haven't committed the worst crimes first feared.

Thoresen points out that "Project Respect" doesn't mean 'respect' as such, but 're-spect', re-view, as in finding new solutions.

The bus drivers have had it. Now they fear lifes may be lost next time they get attacked by this gang.

If you want to write or translate an article about the Kristiansand case, send it to and I'll post it.

I can't understand any Scandinavian languages myself and I don't think Google Translate is good enough to rely on.
