Description


Around 200 Muslim demonstrators gather in Bangkok on Tuesday. They're here to protest against prejudices they say students who wear headscarves face at a Buddhist school. The secondary school in Thailand's capital lifted a ban on the headscarves a year ago, but students say they're still being forced by teachers to remove their Hijabs. The school said they had implemented the ban because classrooms are situated within the grounds of a Buddhist temple.
