FILE - In this May 28, 2010 file photo, women wearing headscarves are seen in Lleida, Spain which on Thursday Dec 9 2010 became the country's first city to implement a ban on the wearing of face-covering Islamic veils in municipal buildings. Lleida, located in the northeastern region of Catalonia, approved the legislation in May, but procedural issues have delayed its implementation. The gesture is largely symbolic, because only about 3 percent of Lleida's population is Muslim, only a handful of whom actually wear body-covering burqas or face-covering niqab garments. less
