Burqinis Are Banned On Public Beaches In Cannes, France
The summer ordinance bans beach clothes that aren't "respectful of good morals and secularism."By Samantha Crook | August 12, 2016
This is a burqini. It's a swimsuit worn by some Muslim women, and it was recently banned on public beaches in Cannes, France.
The city's mayor imposed the summer ordinance, which bans beach clothes that aren't "respectful of good morals and secularism."
The order says: "Beachwear which ostentatiously displays religious affiliation, when France and places of worship are currently the target of terrorist attacks, is liable to create risks of disrupting public order."
