Burkini ban: Second French Riviera resort follows Cannes as mayor says Muslim beachwear ‘unwelcome’

A second French Riviera resort has announced a ban against “burkinis” as uproar continues over the prohibition in Cannes.

Lionnel Luca, the mayor of Villeneuve-Loubet, said the prohibition of full-body swimsuits worn by some Muslim women was for sanitary reasons.

“I was told that there was a couple on one of our beaches where the wife was swimming fully dressed, and I considered that unacceptable for hygienic reasons and unwelcome given the general situation,” he told the AFP news agency.
