Six So Far Convicted Under France's Veil Ban
Radio Free Europe
French Interior Minister Claude Gueant says six women have been convicted and fined since a ban on face-covering Islamic veils took effect in April.
Gueant cites the figure in an interview with "Le Monde" daily, saying no woman has been sent to a citizenship class -- another potential punishment.
Controversy surrounded the law's passage.
