15 Jan - Australia:
SHOPKEEPERS are demanding sunglasses, baseball caps and religious face veils be banned to guard against criminals trying to hide their identities.Link
The Queensland Retailers Association yesterday declared its members should have the right to ban customers from wearing any clothing that obscured faces.
But the proposed ban has outraged civil libertarians, Islamic groups and Queensland's Anti-Discrimination Commission. They say the move would be unlawful and unfairly target Muslims and teenagers.
