Germany to impose partial ban on face veils, officials say

German officials intend to ban face veils in some circumstances, including in schools and at demonstrations, they announced Friday. Germany’s proposed partial ban is to promote security and national cohesion, Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said. De Maiziere spoke at a press conference announcing his governing Christian Democratic Union’s “Berlin Declaration,” which he said had two chapters, one on security and one on cohesion.
