Yemen

San'a, the old city of the Yemen capital made up of alleys and souqs has been declared among the UNESCO protected sites.
In this country women are always covered sometimes even with gloves and veils on the face so that no skin lobster leaks out. In Sura 24 verse 31, that is in a passage, the Koran reads: "Women cover both breasts with veils of their heads, they do not display female ornaments except their husbands" and a circle of family members. In Sura 33 in verse 59 we read: "O prophet, tell your brides and daughters and the women of believers to cover themselves with their cloaks; they will allow them to be distinguished from other women and to ensure that they are not offended". .. In some countries the Koran is followed with extreme rigor, and the women who transgress risk sentences and penalties
