Burquini swimwear faces trial by fire
20
Aug '09
The Mayor, Mr Gianluca Buonanno of Varallo Sesia, a Northern Italian city has barred Muslim women from wearing the controversial body concealing swim suit also known as Burqini in the swimming pools or riversides of the town.

Women caught wearing the Burqini face a fine of €500 if spotted at the poolside. The Burquini is made up a veil, a tunic and loose leggings and has been designed by an Australian designer.

Giving a justification for the decree, the Mayor said that the masked women could disturb small children as well as could raise issues of hygiene.

In the previous week, authorities of a swimming pool in France had raised objections to a woman swimming in a Burquini.
