Woman Ticketed in France for Wearing Face Veil
by Angela Charlton
A woman has been ticketed in a suburban Paris shopping center for wearing a face veil, in the first reported sanction under a new ban on the garments, police said Tuesday.
Another woman in another Paris suburb was stopped for wearing a veil, but was let go with a warning.
The inconsistent response illustrates the challenge for towns with a large Muslim community in enforcing a law that some view as Islamophobic.
