Ban on Face-Covering Veils in Bulgaria Passed by MP Committee
Lawmakers at a parliamentary committee have adopted on first reading nationwide a restriction on the wearing of veils covering a person's face in public places, local media report.
The move comes after several towns and cities across the country passed their own regulations restricting the use of such items to cover the face in public.
Wrongly known as "the burqa ban", the restriction was submitted as a bill by nationalist VMRO party.
