Thursday, July 10, 2014Plans to build a new road in Iceland were halted recently when campaigners warned that it would disturb elves living in its path.
Construction work had to be stopped until a solution could be found.
" It's not every day in Iceland that we divert roads for elves. It's just in this case we were warned that elves were living in some of the rocks in the path of the road - well, we have to respect that belief,"
explained Petur Matthiasson of the Icelandic Highways department.
