Russian Student Reportedly Expelled Over Hijab
Russian prosecutors said Monday they are looking into the alleged expulsion of a female student from a Siberian university over her hijab.
Last week, a local TV station in the city of Krasnoyarsk reported that an unnamed third-year student from Muslim-populated Dagestan had been expelled from the city's medical school for wearing a headscarf.
"After the TV report [about the incident] was broadcast, the Krasnoyarsk district prosecutors launched a probe to check the legitimacy of the expulsion," local prosecutor's aid Yelena Pimonenko told RIA Novosti on Monday.
