Bulgaria bans full-face Islamic veil

Bulgaria banned on Friday face-covering Islamic veils in public, joining a small number of EU countries as the debate rages across Europe about religious freedoms. Parliament approved the law that “bans wearing in public clothing that partially or completely covers the face”, referring to the burqa or the more common niqab. Bulgaria’s mostly centuries-old Muslim community, dating back to conversions during Ottoman times, makes up around 13 percent of the population, mostly in the Turkish minority.
