LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) _ Switzerland's supreme court threw out an appeal by the Church of Scientology on Wednesday, upholding a law aimed at keeping people from being "dishonestly" accosted on the street.

The Federal Tribunal ruled that the law, introduced last November in Switzerland's second-largest city, Basel, involved an intervention in religious freedom but did not infringe it.

But the judges questioned whether the law, which was prompted by efforts to curb Scientology, could be enforced and said a blanket ban on recruitment in public places would be inadmissible.
