The city of Nice has lifted a controversial ban on burkinis – the latest French seaside resort to do so, in line with a national court ruling.
Bans on the women’s full-body swimsuits have also been lifted in Villeneuve-Loubet, Cannes, Frejus and Roquebrune.
French Riviera mayors imposed the bans, but they were overruled on Friday by France’s top administrative court.
Critics see burkinis as a symbol of Islam and potentially provocative after the July terror atrocity in Nice.
