Right-wing politicians applaud France's burkini ban
The controversial decision by some French towns to ban the full-length Islamic swimming attire known as a burkini has gained the support of some Italian right-wing politicians, while Florence's imam posted a photo online of Roman Catholic nuns wearing their habits on an Italian beach.
Italy doesn't have a burkini ban, which Interior Minister Angelino Alfano on Thursday called a "practical matter" because wearing a burkini doesn't violate any laws.
Alessandro Pagano, an MP with the small splinter New Centre Right (NCD) party, on Friday tweeted: "Germany says no to the burqa, France bans the burkini. Renzi instead sells off our identity. Let's say no to the Islamisation of Italy".
