A female Egyptian news presenter appeared on state television wearing a headscarf for the first time on Sunday after the Islamist-dominated government lifted an effective ban that had been in place for decades under secular-leaning regimes of the past.

The ban on female news readers wearing an Islamic veil had long been criticised even by liberals and human rights activists as an infringement on personal freedoms - particularly in a country where more than half of all adult women cover their heads.

However, it was the latest move by the authorities under new Islamist President Mohammed Morsi to make sweeping changes in state-controlled media.

A few weeks ago, the Islamist-dominated Upper House of Parliament shuffled editors of the state-run media, and most of the 50 new appointees were either Islamists or their sympathisers.

the concerned lady is Ms Fatima Nabil
