Niqab banned in Tunisian government offices

@BBCNews
Tunisia's Premier on Friday banned the Niqab, Muslim face covering for women in government offices, citing security concerns after attacks in the North African country.

Prime Minister Youssef Chahed signed a government circular banning access to public administrations and institutions to anyone with the face covered for security reasons, his office said.

The ban on the Niqab, which covers the entire face apart from the eyes, comes at a time of heightened security following a June 27 double suicide bombing in Tunis that left two dead and seven wounded.
