Kosovo protest over school headscarf ban
About five thousand people have protested in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, against a government decision to ban religious symbols including Muslim headscarves in public schools.
Many demonstrators came from all over the country. About 90 percent of Kosovo's population are Muslims, but most have western values. The former Serbian province adopted a secular Constitution after declaring independence two years ago.
The protesters who gathered outside the Ministry of Education complained of discrimination.
