Norway capital sees rising number of women in niqabs
by Linn Schjerven and Michael Sandelson
Muslim women clad in a niqab are becoming an increasingly common sight in the streets of Oslo, reports say.
The trend of wearing the religious garment, a black veil that covers a woman head to toe, has apparently developed rapidly over the past two years.
"Yes, the niqab is popular," Kari Vogt, a historian on religion and Islam, confirmed to Aftenposten, Thursday.
