A woman wearing a full Muslim veil is detained by police in Paris after a controversial law banning Islamic face veils goes into effect.
Kenza Drider, a mother of four from the south of France, was taken to a police station for an identity check during a silent prayer session against the ban on Monday in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral.
