Saudi women turned away from France for refusing to take off burkas
by Oliver Carmichael
Three Saudi women have been refused entry into France because they refused to remove their burkas.
The women were turned away at passport control in Charles de Gaulle airport on Monday for flouting France's controversial law banning anyone from hiding their faces in public.
A police official from the SGP-FO police union confirmed: "They refused to take their veils off, so they were turned away."
