Veiled threats

Girls wore traditional mantillas for a school procession in Seville, the Andalusian capital in southern Spain. The mantilla is a lace scarf worn by women covering their head and shoulders. It is often worn during the Holy Week before Easter in Andalusia, the southernmost region of Spain ruled for nearly eight centuries by the Moors.
