Election huts become shelter for EU migrants

The municipal council in Hässleholm in southern Sweden has approved a proposal to turn the small wooden huts used by the political parties during last year's election campaigns into shelters for homeless EU-migrants, Swedish Radio News reports.

The discarded election huts will provide shelter for roughly 20 EU migrants, who up until now have taken up camp next to a heavily trafficked road. The election huts will be put up on an empty plot owned by the municipality in order to give the EU migrants a safer place to live.
