French panel recommends partial ban on full face veil

A French parliamentary panel recommended today that France impose a ban on wearing the full face veil in public -- buses, subways and hospitals. Under the proposal, women would have to show their faces when entering a facility and remain uncovered. The ban could take effect by the end of the year -- but would not apply to wearing the veil on the street or in private.
