Vienna swimming pool burkini ban sparks protest
Muslims in Vienna are planning to protest at a swimming pool after being told that burkinis were banned for hygiene and safety reasons.
The row started when a young Muslim woman was told to leave the 'Stadthallenbad' indoor swimming pool in Vienna.
The young woman, a 23-year-old student, said she was particularly annoyed because she had telephoned before and had been told that burkinis were allowed.
However when she arrived she and her friend who was also wearing a burkini were told to leave by a swimming pool employee.
