Armed police force woman to take off burkini on beach in Nice


Pictures have emerged of armed French police making a woman remove some of her clothing on a beach as part of the controversial burkini ban.

The ban outlaws the burkini, which covers the head and body.
It is over concerns about religious clothing in the wake of several terrorist attacks.

She also received a fine, while local people jeered the woman and told her to go home.

Police in Cannes also ordered another Muslim woman off the beach and fined her for wearing a headscarf.

Nice, France

The 34-year-old mother had a pepper spray canister pointed towards her face by the armed officers as they told her she was in breach of the new rule.
