'Burqini bans will only divide France more'
by Oliver Gee
As yet another town in France moves to ban the burqini, experts argue that such decisions will actually worsen France's relationship with Islam.
The mayor of Cannes made international headlines last week after banning women from wearing burqinis on his town's beaches.
Just days later, Corsica saw unrest when families with a north African origin clashed with other locals after tourists photographed a woman wearing a burqini at the beach.
The town's mayor also banned the burqini.
