Saudi cleric: Full veil too revealing

A Saudi cleric suggests that the niqab, the head-to-toe covering worn by Saudi women revealing only their eyes, should be made even more concealing by reducing exposure to one eye.
A Muslim cleric in Saudi Arabia has called on women to wear a full veil, or niqab, that reveals only one eye.
