An Egyptian supreme court decided Saturday that a liberal university in Cairo cannot ban women from wearing the face veil while inside the campus, a court official and a lawyer in the case said. However, the American University in Cairo said the decision by a legal committee of the Supreme Administrative Court was not the final ruling, and that the top court was yet to give its verdict in the five-year-long case.
