New Egyptian TV Channel operated exclusively by veiled women - Video

A new satellite TV channel is being launched in Egypt, but unlike other channels the female presenters will all be wearing the niqab, the traditional Muslim face-covering. The TV channel is called Maraya after one of the prophet Mohammad's wives who was a freed Egyptian Coptic slave and is set to start broadcasting on 20 July, coinciding with the start of Ramadan - the Islamic month of fasting. The programme aims to teach Muslim women more about religion.
