    Mayors of French towns who banned the controversial “burkini” swimsuit have been warned they must heed a court ruling suspending the action. Human rights lawyer Patrice Spinosi said if any mayors did not comply, he would take each case to court but at least three mayors have said they will keep the bans on their beaches.
