(ANSAmed) - TUNIS - Tunisian educational circles have decided to react against the wave of violence in a number of schools in recent weeks, caused mostly by Islamic extremists, who are attempting to use force to overturn the ruling that bans women form wearing the niqab in class. Schools will be suspended for twenty minutes by teachers on Wednesday, who are looking to force action from the government, which has been accused of a complete lack of action against the problem. Teachers have also accused the media of not paying enough attention to the problem.
