Majority in France against burqinis on beaches
Just under two thirds of French people (64 percent) are against the burqini being worn on beaches, a survey published on Thursday revealed.
Only six percent said they were in favour of the Islamic full-body swimsuit, while the remaining 30 percent of those surveyed were "indifferent".
The results come from a survey conducted by Ifop for French national Le Figaro, and show that "the beach isn't seen as a 'separate' public space, but is considered equivalent to the street," according to Jérôme Fourquet from the polling firm.
