French Senate Passes Burqa Ban

Ad Feedback

Burqa's are closer to being banned in France after the Senate there voted overwhelmingly to outlaw the face-covering veils worn by Muslim women.

Tuesday's Senate vote was 246-1.  The bill also easily passed in the lower chamber earlier this year.

French President Nicholas Sarkozy has promised to sign the ban into law, but first a constitutional council is being asked to make sure it can hold up in court.
