    France MPs' report backs Muslim face veil ban

    A French parliamentary committee has recommended a partial ban on women wearing Islamic face veils.
    The committee's near 200-page report has proposed a ban in hospitals, schools, government offices and on public transport.
    It also recommends that anyone showing visible signs of "radical religious practice" should be refused residence cards and citizenship.
    The interior ministry says just 1,900 women in France wear the full veils.

    I'm moving this to Terrorism because it relates to that topic. Muslim men have obviously used women's clothing choices to disguise themselves for terrorist activities. Also, people walking around with their faces obscured (not on Halloween) are just plain creepy to Westerners. ;)
