Barbie now wears a hijab

The U.S-based Mattell, which produces the famed Barbie dolls, has unveiled its first hijab-wearing Barbie, Reuters reported Tuesday.

The new doll honors American Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, who made history at last year's Rio Olympics as the first U.S. Olympian to represent her country wearing a hijab.
