European ruling 'is the right result', say secular groups


The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that a former British Airways employee suffered discrimination at work because of her religious beliefs.

The court rejected the cases of three others who also brought claims against their employers.

Keith Porteous Wood from the National Secular Society welcomed the ruling today, saying he was pleased that religion had not been given special rights.
