French MEP Nadine Morano Alerts Police to Muslim Woman Wearing Banned Niqab Face Covering
by Umberto Bacchi
A French politician alerted police to a Muslim woman wearing a black niqab in Paris, in breach of a controversial law banning face-covering veils.
Nadine Morano, a prominent member of the centre-right UMP (Union for a Popular Movement) party, said she walked into the woman upon arriving at Paris Est train station.
The 51-year-old Member of the EU Parliament (MEP) wrote on Facebook that she could not tell if the Islam faithful was a man or a woman as "he/she" was covered from head to toe "with only the eyes left exposed".
