Switzerland: Upper house buries anti-burqa motion
Islam in Europe
The Swiss upper house buried a motion Monday to ban the burqa. Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga argued the problem was insignificant in terms of numbers, and that no more than 100-150 women wore the burqa nationwide, most of them tourists. The cantons are still free to enact their own laws on the matter.
