Ain Shams University, in Cairo, has announced that it will appeal a court ruling allowing its female students to wear a full face veil - the niqab - in campus dormitories, AFP reported. Many Egyptian educators have opposed the wearing of the niqab on campus, and another court ruling is expected soon on a university ban on the niqab during exams. The court's ruling in the Ain Shams case, however, said that wearing the face veil "is one example of freedom that no administrative body or any other body can ban."
