The International Judo Federation has ruled that Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shahrkhani, one of the first two Saudi women to compete in the Olympics, cannot wear a head scarf in competition because of the danger it presents to her. The other female Olympian from Saudi Arabia will be able to compete in distance-running wearing a head scarf. Saudi officials agreed to send women to the Olympics on the condition that they wear the appropriate Islamic clothing. (AP video)
