Teenager, 18, sentenced for biting officer while being arrested for wearing a niqab appears in French appeal court… in burkha
A French teenager who was sentenced for biting a police officer while being arrested for wearing a niqab has appeared in court at her appeal hearing with the veil on.
Louise-Marie Suisse was stopped by two police officers near a mosque in the centre of Marseille in late July, for wearing a niqab - full-face veil - in breach of a ban introduced in 2011.
The court heard the 18-year-old refused to cooperate with the police when asked to produce identity papers.
