The central Bulgarian town of Pazardzhik banned the wearing of full-face veils in public Wednesday in a move the local government said would prevent tension among communities and boost security.The ban, the first of its kind in the Balkan country, was backed from politicians across the political spectrum in the town of some 70,000 people, where wearing full-face veils had become common among some Muslim Roma women.Muslims make up about 12 percent of Bulgaria's 7.2 million population and most belong to a centuries-old community, largely ethnic Turks, among whom full-face veils are not common.
