French mayor wants to ban Muslim ‘burqini’ pool party near Marseille

The mayor of a French town intends to prohibit a “burqini” party organized by a local Muslim organization, telling the newspaper Le Parisien he was “shocked and angry” by the “provocation.”

The party is set for September 17th at the Speed Water Park near Marseille, and is “exclusively for women, girls, and boys under 10,” with female attendants urged to wear burqinis – Muslim swimsuits that cover women from head to feet – because there will be male guards at the event.
