Ad Feedback

Five female news anchors at the Al-Jazeera television network have quit their jobs after being criticized for their on-air appearance.

Joumana Nammour, Lina Zahr al-Din, Jullinar Mousa, Luna al-Shibl, and Nawfar Afli said the Arab network made "offensive remarks" about them wearing pant suits and make-up, and for not covering their hair.

Al-Jazeera told the UK Daily Mail they enforce a dress code that reflects their "spirit and principles."

Critics of the network accuse it of being an outlet for Islamic extremists.
