BBC NEWS | Europe | Italy school crucifixes 'barred'

Note by Marc Aupiais

Our service is still on slow operating: only important stories:

"The European Court of Human Rights has ruled against the use of crucifixes in classrooms in Italy.

It said the practice violated the right of parents to educate their children as they saw fit, and ran counter to the child's right to freedom of religion.

The case was brought by an Italian mother, Soile Lautsi, who wants to give her children a secular education. But the ruling has sparked anger in the largely Catholic country, with one politician calling the move "shameful". "
