Denmark veil ban: First woman charged for wearing niqab

Denmark enforces burqa ban amid protests

After police were called, they found that she had been illegally wearing a niqab in public and - when she refused to remove it - she was issued a fine of 1,000 Danish kroner (£120).

Police spokesperson David Borchersen said a fight broke out after the Muslim woman walked into the other woman, who tried to rip her face veil off, at the top of some escalators.

On the same day, the ban took effect, women took to the streets of the capital city of Copenhagen and Aarhus, Denmark's second-largest city.

The episode took place in the center of Hørsholm center where the woman with niqab came up to top with another woman by an escalator in the center.

U.S. revives sanctions to hurt Iran economy
Later in the year, the U.S. will also reimpose sanctions on Iran's oil and energy exports and transactions with the central bank. He said Iran had "always welcomed negotiations" but that Washington would first have to demonstrate it can be trusted.

The police took a photo of the woman in the niqab, as well as securing other video evidence from surveillance cameras in the shopping centre.

The new burka law means that all forms of clothing that cover the face are now banned in public spaces, unless they serve a creditable objective.

Human rights campaigners have said the ban is a violation of women's rights, while supporters argue it enables better integration of Muslim immigrants into Danish society.

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Copenhagen wearing burqas and other face veils as the law went into effect Wednesday.

A man at the scene told reporters , "It's not normally like this right here". "A lot of people were out here tonight", he said. Police said that one of the suspects appeared to stand over one person and shoot that person deliberately.

The ban is aimed at an estimated 150 to 200 Muslim women in Denmark who wear the garments.

Police said both women were charged with violating the peace and said one had also been charged with violating the full-face veil law.

Those caught wearing such coverings face a fine of 1,000 kroner, while repeat offenders can face fines of 10,000 kroner.

Previous year the European Court of Human Rights upheld a similar Belgian ban, saying that communal harmony trumped an individual's right to religious expression.
