Muslim woman ordered to remove full-face veil in court

A Muslim woman has been ordered to remove her full-face veil while giving evidence at her trial. The judge at Blackfriars Crown Court will allow her to wear the niqaab throughout the rest of the case. It comes as a Home Office Minister calls for a national debate on whether women should be allowed to wear the veil.
