"A Frenchwoman who wears an Islamic face veil, flouting a nationwide ban, announced on Thursday she wants to run for president in next year's elections. A French court also fined two women who have refused to remove their veils. All three women are part of a growing attack on the law that has banned the garments from the streets of France since April and prompted similar moves toward a ban in other European countries."
