France turns away three Saudi women over veils
From Expatica and Metro News Canada
France has refused entry to three women from Saudi Arabia who declined to take off their veils for immigration officials, forcing them to get a return flight, an airport source said Tuesday.
An official with the SGP-FO police union spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly for the police.
The women arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris on a Qatar Airways flight from Doha at 2:30 pm (1230 GMT) Monday but were denied entry into France after refusing to lift their full Muslim veils to show their faces to police carrying out border controls.
"They were issued a fine, according to the law" and returned to Doha that evening, the source said.
