Woman charged for wearing niqab in Denmark

Woman charged for wearing niqab in Denmark

A woman has become the first person in Denmark to be charged with wearing a face veil in public, after a ban came into effect on Wednesday.

Local media report a 28-year-old woman was fined after getting into a scuffle with a woman trying to remove her veil.

Police say they were called and when they reviewed CCTV, informed the woman she would be charged if she refused to take her niqab off.

The new law has provoked protests and criticism from human rights groups.

It was officially introduced on Wednesday after it passed in Denmark’s parliament earlier this year .
