Belgian right-wingers offer burqa bounty
by Ben Deighton and Robert-Jan Bartunek
Belgian right-wingers have offered to pay a 250 euros ($310) bounty to anyone who reports a veiled woman to police, they said on Tuesday, in the wake of face veil riots in Brussels.
Filip Dewinter, a senior figure within Vlaams Belang, a right-wing party, told Reuters the riots had made police apprehensive about enforcing the burqa ban and that the payment should put pressure on authorities to further enforce it.
"It's a textile prison for the women who have to live under it," he said.
