Federal committee recommends burqa ban in schools, offices
A government-appointed committee has supported a partial ban on the traditional Islamic burqa and the niqab.
The Federal Commission on Women's Issues calls for traditional full-face veils to be banned in government offices and in public schools.
It is a move, the group says, to prevent gender discrimination.
