Germany could be the next country to ban women from wearing burqas and other full-face veils.
The country's interior minister said Friday that security officials from Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative bloc want to ban the veils in public places where identification is required — like schools, public offices and while driving.
The BBC quotes the interior minister as saying: "It doesn't fit in with our open society. Showing the face is a constituent element for our communication, the way we live, our social cohesion."
