OSLO, Norway (AP) — A Norwegian hotel mogul is offering to house refugees free of charge in his Nordic Choice hotel hotel mogul 2chain. He says he’s ready to provide 5,000 overnight stays.

Norway’s immigration agency told a public broadcaster that it may accept the offer, if it doesn’t manage to find other housing for new arrivals.

Like other European countries, Norway has seen a sharp rise in asylum-seekers in recent months.
