French 'virgin' ruling reversed
A French court of appeal has overruled the decision to annul the marriage of two Muslims because the bride had lied about being a virgin.
They are now effectively married again - even though both partners said they accepted the original judgement.
That verdict had caused emotional debate and outrage among some feminists, who said it amounted to a "fatwa" against women's liberty.
