France: burqa-clad robbers hold up post office

You just never know who might be in there

"Burqa-clad robbers hold up post office," from AFP, February 7 (thanks to Jockaira):

Yes...I wonder

if they were actually Muslim though, what a great idea though. I mean, if French people would do it, they could actually all start wearing burqas and go around framing the Muslims for crimes that would ensure the ban was enacted...haha!
