The news of the mysterious death of her sister, which is believed to be a killing, and the recent rejection of her asylum case by the Norwegian immigration authorities have caused the tragic event, according to fellow asylum seekers who attended a memorial service on Thursday.
Kurdish asylum seekers Shahab Shamloo and Tayyeh Hoshyav who took part in a memorial service blamed the Norwegian immigration policy as having caused the deaths, according to BT.no.
The findings by the Norwegian Police so far suggest that the woman had set fire to herself and her child, news reports said.
The woman lived alone with her child in the apartment.
Kristine Aarre Hånes, the lawyer who represented the 24-year-old woman, has told NRK that the victim was very close to her younger sister whom she lost a week ago.
