French police warned not to arrest Muslim women covering up near mosques as country prepares for 'burka ban'
by Peter Allen
Police in France have been warned not to arrest any women wearing Muslim veils 'in or around' mosques.
The strict instructions, from Interior Minister Claude Guent, are contained in a nine page circular issued to officers prior to a full-blown burka ban coming into force next week.
With tensions running high within the country's six million strong Muslim community, people have already been warned not to perform 'citizen's de-veilings'.
