 Burkini ban challenged in France

The city of Grenoble has applied to France's highest administrative court to challenge the ban on the burkini, a closed bathing suit worn mostly by Muslim women.

The Grenoble authorities' decision to allow all bathing suits, including the burkini, has sparked a legal battle with the government, according to the BBC.

French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin called Grenoble City Council's policy on bathing suits an “unacceptable provocation”, contrary to the secular values ​​of the country.

The dispute about whether to allow burkini or not in Grenoble, must decide the court. A decision is expected to be made in the coming days.
