Armed men hiding behind Muslim veils make off with cash at Marseille supermarket

From the Winnipeg Free Press

MARSEILLE, France - Police say that armed men hiding behind Muslim veils have emptied the coffers of a French supermarket.

Public Security police say the four or five thieves armed with knives wore niqabs — veils normally worn by women that cover the head and face except for the eyes. They held up a supermarket in a working-class neighbourhood in the northern section of the city Marseille.

Police said on Saturday that the sum of money taken was not immediately clear.
