Channel Seven denies French Burkini segment was 'a set-up'
by Susannah Guthrie
The Seven Network has denied claims from a French newspaper that it "set up" a segment in which an Australian woman wearing a burkini was asked to leave a French beach.
Newspaper Nice-Matin carried an extensive report this week investigating the Sunday Night segment, with several eyewitnesses saying the Seven reporting team appeared to engineer the expulsion.
The segment in question followed Australian medical student Zeynab Alshelh, 23, as she travelled from Sydney to show solidarity with Muslims in France by wearing Australian-designed burkinis in the French national colours.
