The Netherlands has introduced a so-called burka ban which prevents people from wearing face coverings in hospitals, schools and on public transport.
Rights groups have voiced opposition to the law - and an Islamic political party in Rotterdam has said it will pay the €150 (£137) fine for anybody caught violating the ban.https://news.sky.com/story/netherlands-burka-ban-comes-into-force-in-schools-hospitals-and-on-buses-11774887
There were no immediate reports of anybody being fined on Thursday under the new rules - formally called the "partial ban on face-covering clothing" - which was passed despite the fact very few women in the Netherlands wear a burka or niqab.
Estimates put the number at a few hundred in the nation of 17 million people.
