(FILES) -- This combination of pictures created from AFP file images on June 19, 2009 shows Muslim women wearing various type of Islamic veils, a Hijab (top L), a Niqab (top R) a Tchador (down L) and a Burqa. France's top administrative body advised the government on March 30, 2010 that a complete ban on the wearing of a full Islamic veil would be vulnerable to legal challenge. President Nicolas Sarkozy's government wants to ban women from wearing full face veils such as the niqab or the burqa and had asked the State Council for advice before proposing legislation. But the council warned that attempts to stop Muslim women from wearing veils in their homes or on the street would be legally questionable and a law should be limited to interactions with the state or security officials.
