'Burqini' pool party in France called off after death threats
A hugely contentious private swimming pool party planned by a Muslim womens' group that had encouraged guests to wear "burqinis" will now not take place after all after bullets were sent to organizers.
The event, which was planned for mid-September, was cancelled after a decision by the town's mayor and the swimming centre in a bid to "calm the situation" following a strong reaction from the public.
According to the organizers that reaction also included death threats being made to the Muslim organizers. One letter sent through the post contained bullets.
