Egyptian teacher sentenced for cutting girls' unveiled hair

CAIRO - An Egyptian school teacher received a six-month suspended jail sentence on Tuesday for cutting the hair of two 12-year-old girl pupils who were not wearing Islamic headscarves, a judicial source said.
Iman Abu Bakr Kilany, a science teacher who herself wears a full-length veil, said last month she had been removed from the school in the southern town of Luxor after complaints by relatives of the girls - the only two in her class who did not wear headscarves.
She said she was being moved to an administrative job and docked one month's salary.
