Two Muslim women blocked from a Goteborg swimming pool for refusing to shed some of their clothing won more than 20,000 kronor (€2,110; US$3,110) each in damages Tuesday. The Court of Appeal in Western Sweden, overruling an earlier lower court decision, ordered Goteborg to pay the women damages and their legal costs for discriminating against them.
