Religious clothing included in Norwegian military dress code

Spokesman Christian Oeverli said new rules will ensure all units have an open, practical approach "concerning clothing with religious symbols."
Norway has allowed the wearing of symbols - such as armbands and crosses - by its military since the 1980s, but the new rules establish when and how they can be used, including the banning of impractical clothing during military action.
The regulations also stipulate that headscarves and skullcaps be of a single colour and without ornaments.
