Basketball: FIBA allows player to wear hijab on court
The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) gave permission Thursday for a female Muslim basketball player to wear her headscarf while playing.
The federation announced that 18-year-old Noha Berhan, who plays for Stockholm-based amateur league team Huddinge, would be allowed to wear a hijab during her matches.
Thursday's decision will be valid until the end of January 2017; FIBA officials will meet again to discuss the matter, the federation revealed.
