The Grenoble city council gave the green light on Monday to the wearing of the burkini in the city's municipal swimming pools, after a tight vote on this divisive question, at the heart of a lively national controversy for weeks.

During the presidential campaign, Mrs. Le Pen had already proposed a law to prohibit "signs or outfits constituting in themselves an unequivocal and ostentatious affirmation of" Islamist ideologies, which she intends to banish from all spheres of society. .
