In this photo taken Thursday, February 4, 2016 in Hammerfest, northern Norway, refugee Huda al Haggar and her son Omar from Sanaa in Yemen talk to the Associated Press at the northernmost refugee camp in the world. Waiting for their asylum claims to be processed, hundreds of people in emergency shelters in Hammerfest and neighboring towns are slowly getting used to the extreme climate and unfamiliar customs of the High North. They say they have adapted to the cold – the temperature rarely drops below minus 10 degrees C (14 F) along the coast, though it gets much colder further inland. It’s the darkness that throws them off. (Photo by Alastair Grant/AP Photo)
