DW's got that story "covered" as a kind of ahhh invasion of the male sex workers, illustrated: "their half-naked bodies in some of the tall windows".

Is there a word for 90%-naked-body auf Deutsch?

I was a slightly more alarmed that editorial management hasn't been keeping up with or more alarmed by the city's urban renewal/gentrification/licensing purge like DutchNews.NL has over the last few years.

Unaffordable real estate is a kind of HOT! topic in *.de.

City of Nijmegen: Official apologizes to woman with niqab banned from playground

A woman wearing a niqab has received an apology from the municipality of Nijmegen on Sunday afternoon. The woman and her family were visiting "De Leemkuuil" playground.

A discussion arose in the playground about the woman's garment in connection with the prohibition of face-covering clothing, which came into force in the Netherlands on 1 August.

The playground, however, does not fall under the so-called burqa ban, after consultation with the police and the municipality. Afterwards apologies were offered to the woman.

In the not so distant future, that ordinance will likely be repealed and replaced. With what superior personal protection equipment (PPE)? I've no idea.
