OSLO (Reuters) - Norway’s Conservative Prime Minister Erna Solberg will remain in office as head of a minority three-party coalition following the resignation of the right-wing Progress Party, Solberg said on Monday.

Finance Minister Siv Jensen earlier announced the resignation of Progress over the cabinet’s decision to bring home from Syria a woman suspected of Islamic State affiliation.
