Two Muslim women marched out of swimming pool in French holiday village because they were wearing burkinis
by Ian Sparks
Two Muslim women were ordered out of a swimming pool in France because they were wearing 'burkinis'.
They jumped into the water wearing garments that covered their entire bodies, including veils over their heads.
The incident came ten days after French MPs voted to outlaw the burka in public places.
The new law, which brands the garment 'an insult to the country's values', means women will be fined or jailed for hiding their faces in public.
