Muslim Women Defy Burqa Ban

Two French women who continue to wear the full-face veil in defiance of a new law banning it in France are set to appear in court for sentencing.

Hind Amas and Kenza Drider were caught wearing the niqab in public outside Meaux town hall, eastern Paris, in May.
They could become the first of 91 women stopped by French police to be handed the 150 euro (£130) fine.
Campaigners say if a fine is imposed they will appeal against it all the way to the European Court of Human Rights.
