Kosovo: Muslim students challenge Kosovo Headscarf ban

Kosovo is one of Europe's majority Muslim countries, but now an adminstrative order has banned the wearing of headscarves in schools.

Njomza Jashari, a student refused to remove her headscarf and was expelled, that has led to her classmates boycotting lessons in protest.

The school principal has tried to defuse the row by meeting parents behind closed doors.

But the decision came back unchanged as religious clothes, including headscarf, are banned.
