    Court upholds headscarf ban for Muslim teachers

    Dusseldorf (dpa)

    A court in Germany's most populous state of North Rhine-Westphalia upheld a ban Tuesday on Muslim female teachers wearing headscarves in schools.

    Wearing a headscarf violated a state regulation against religious symbols in public schools, the administrative court in the western city of Dusseldorf ruled.

    The case was brought by a 52-year-old secondary school teacher, who said she would appeal Tuesday's ruling.

    Authorities in North Rhine-Westphalia imposed a ban on headscarves in June 2006.
