A ban on wearing Muslim burqas is one step closer to becoming law in France.
On Tuesday, the measure passed France's lower house of parliament. There were over 300 votes in favor of the ban and only one opposed.
The new law would ban women from wearing the traditional Islamic veil that covers the face.
Bill supporters say the burqa oppresses women.
The French ban is also expected to pass the senate later this summer
Belgium is also considering a ban, and last month, Spanish lawmakers said they favored barring burqas in government buildings.
