HeadlineMay 04, 2016

Meanwhile, in California, a group of women say they were kicked out of a cafe in Laguna Beach last month for being Muslim and wearing hijabs. Sara Farsakh said she and her friends were told to leave the restaurant within 10 minutes, while their desserts and coffee were still on the table. A worker said the restaurant needed to clear tables for other clients, but Farsakh said there were numerous empty tables, and other customers were not asked to leave.
