French veil law: Muslim woman's challenge in Strasbourg
A young Muslim woman is challenging France's full-face veil ban at the European Court of Human Rights, based in the French city of Strasbourg.
The woman argues that the niqab, and the burka body covering, accord with her "religious faith, culture and personal convictions".
She denies being under any pressure from her family to wear them.
