'Challenging' Ramadan in Norway as day lasts 20 hours

Norway is often referred to as 'the land of the midnight sun'. For Muslims here, fasting during Ramadan is a particular challenge.

Most believe in waiting till dusk to break their fast - not easy when the day is 20 hours long.

There are over 200,000 Muslims in Norway and their numbers are increasing.
