French city Nice suspends burkini ban after defiance
A Nice court finally suspended the burkini ban on Thursday after authorities in the French Riviera resort had defied a ruling by the country's highest administrative court.
Judges in Nice said the July 14 terror attack on the French Riviera city gave insufficient grounds to justify such a ban.
The decision Thursday follows last week's ruling by France's highest administrative court to suspend the bans introduced by around 30 towns, mainly in the sun-drenched southeast.
Nice and several other towns had ignored the ruling and kept their bans in place in the midst of a raging debate over religious clothing in secular France.
