“‘Go naked in Saudi Arabia and see what will happen to you’: French mayor vows to ignore burkini ban court ruling,” by Darren Boyle, MailOnline, August 31, 2016:
A right-wing French mayor has vowed to continue with the burkini ban despite France’s top court ruling the restriction is illegal.
Mayor of Cogolin Marc Etienne Lansade claimed people should live according to the local customs and traditions of the country they are in.
