IOC WELCOMES SAUDI END TO GIRLS’ SPORTS BAN

0

GENEVA: The International Olympic Committee on Sunday urged the Saudi government to push forward with moves to lift a ban on sports in girls’ state schools. The conservative Muslim kingdom’s consultative Shura Council last week recommended an end to the ban, which was relaxed in private schools last year, state media reported. The ministry must officially lift the ban as the council is influential, but only advisory.
