Tunisian bans full face covering niqab :Relating to security reasons, Tunisian Prime Minister Youssef Chahed has banned the wearing of the niqab, which covers the entire face apart from the eyes, in all government offices.

However, One rights group begged the government, to ensure the ban was temporary because the niqab is worn by some Muslim women to interpret modesty.
