Spanish students plan protest against hijab in class

Spanish school authorities in Lerida shut down a planned protest by students at a local high school. The students protested after two fellow students, both of whom are Muslim girls, were allowed to wear the hijab to class. The students planned to wear helmets to class to protest that they were unable to wear caps while the other students wore hijab. Sources at the school said that this was a minor incident and that the two Muslim girls are attending class normally and without further opposition. This was the first time Muslim girls wearing the hijab had attended the school.
