Norwegian Anchorwoman Fired for Wearing Cross on Air

Some viewers - mainly members of a local Muslim community - protested against this, claiming that "a necklace with a Cross insults Islam" and "this symbol does not guarantee impartiality of the TV channel".

The journalist, one of the best known and the most popular on the Norwegian public television, was suspended and prohibited from hosting her programs, "lest she should be a source of discord and crimes".
