Because Boko Haram often uses loose clothing to hide bombs, Senegal is hoping to reduce the regularity of attacks by banning this traditional Muslim veil. Ninety-two percent of Senegal's population is Muslim.
Different styles and colors of head coverings for Muslim women are associated with different countries and cultures. The Burqa is the most concealing, typically covering the entire body and with a mesh screen to see.
