Veiled Muslim Woman Claims Discrimination On US Flight

A US airline has been accused of discrimination after a Muslim woman was allegedly told that she could not have an unopened can of cola because she could use it as a weapon.

Tahera Ahmad, who wears an Islamic headscarf, was traveling on a United Airlines flight from Chicago to capital Washington DC on Saturday when she said a flight attendant refused to give her an unopened can while other passengers were given so.
