Switzerland: Basketball association bans headscarf
The Swiss basketball association has told a Muslim player she can't wear a headscarf during league games.
Shura Al-Shawk, a 19-year-old Swiss citizen of Iraqi origin, is making her debut in a regional women's league when the season starts next month. Her team, STV Luzern, sought permission for her to wear the scarf.
Al-Shawk says she is surprised by the decision, but has not said if she will play without the scarf.
