German mayor under fire after posting 'joke' picture of a cucumber which looks like a burka

A German mayor has come under fire after posting a 'joke' picture of a cucumber that looks like a burka on Facebook.
The picture of the burka-like cucumber was shared on social media by Mayor Simone Stein-Luecke, who oversees the Bad Godesberg municipal district in the former West German capital of Bonn.
Above the picture the text 'Gurka' was added, a play on the word 'gurke', the German word for cucumber.
She later defended the post, describing it as amusing, and said he is opposed to the full-faced veil.
