Another example of the growing persecution of Christians - in their own countries?
A female student at a public school in the U.K. was expelled for refusing to take off her crucifix necklace, which she had worn for several years.
Meanwhile, people practicing other religions are allowed to wear their symbols at the school.
A school today defended its decision to exclude a pupil after she refused to take off her crucifix necklace.
Sam Morris, 16, was told to remove her cross and chain on Thursday by deputy head teacher Howard Jones at Sinfin Community School in Derby.
When the year-11 student refused she was told not to return until today and without the item of jewellery.
The 1,070-student comprehensive has a strict policy which bans most jewellery being worn.
Items can be worn out of view or if they are part of religious beliefs, such as the Kara, a bracelet worn by Sikh males.
What? A crucifix is not part of someone's religious beliefs
