Burqa ban sees 27 offences recorded
France's burqa ban has seen 27 offences recorded since it was brought into force.
The law bans people from covering their faces in public spaces, effectively outlawing the burqa and niqab Islamic dresses.
A report from the Interior Ministry says on average one or two women a day have been given verbal cautions since the ban began on April 11.
