Woman fined $156 for wearing face veil in Denmark
The woman was slapped with a fine of 1,000 Danish kroner ($156) and requested to either remove the veil or leave the premises. She opted to leave.
Since August 1, the country’s much-debated “Burqa Ban” has prohibited full-body burqas, as well the niqab Muslim dress which only shows the eyes. Both are rare in Denmark. Other European countries have similar bans.
