Full-face veil ban took effect on Wednesday leading to protests in the Danish capital Copenhagen

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.

How to watch the longest 'blood moon' eclipse of the century
The Moon will rise in a totally-eclipsed state and we will see about three quarters of the total phase of the eclipse. The eclipse will already have started by the time the Moon rises over the United Kingdom and Western Europe.

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.

Iran plans to respond in kind if U.S. blocks oil exports
President Donald Trump as "psychological warfare", local media reported. The head of Iran's Basij militia on Monday dismissed threats by U.S.

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.
