Woman becomes first in Italy to be fined £430 for wearing burqa

What? No women's rights groups speaking out?

Amel Marmouri, 26, was handed the 500 euro (£430) penalty after she was spotted queuing inside a post office by police with her body and face fully covered by the garment.

She was warned she would receive another fine if she were spotted again in her burka.

Yesterday her husband said as a result he had no option but to stop her from going out.

Oh, I dunno, maybe you can wake up to the fact that the burqa is not a religious symbol, not in the Koran and not part of Islam. That would do for a start.
