European court approves Italian school crucifixes

The European Court of Human Rights has overturned a ruling that said Italian schools had no right to hang crucifixes in classrooms.

Its decision is final.

Judges in Strasbourg said they did not breach the rights of non-Catholics. The Vatican hailed the decision as “history making”.

An earlier ruling against crucifixes caused outrage in the mainly Catholic country.
