Video: Germany approves partial burqa ban

German MPs in the lower house of parliament have approved a partial ban on the burqa.

The draft law stipulates that public servants will be forbidden from wearing the full-face veil while performing their duties.

The move comes after Chancellor Angela Merkel called for a ban on the burqa ‘wherever legally possible’.
