A right-wing Belgian politician has offered a financial reward of more than $250 to anyone who reports a woman wearing a face veil in public to the police.
The wearing of veils in public, worn by a small minority of Muslim women, was banned by the government last year.
Right-wing groups say the ban is not being enforced, however, because police are afraid doing so might lead to riots.
