German public pool bans the burqini
A public indoor swimming pool near Regensburg has issued a ban on the burqini, which some Muslim women choose to wear for modesty.
The ban was imposed after the pool in Neutraubling held a women-only swim day, the Mittelbayerische Zeitung reported last week.
One young woman chose to swim and do water aerobics in a burqini, eliciting loud complaints from the other women there.
The complaints reached the town officials, who decided to place a ban on the burqini as 'non-typical' swim attire.
