Anxious moments for Dutch Muslims

New centre-right coalition with plans to ban full face veil worries country's Muslims.

    After four months of political uncertainty, the Netherlands has a new government - a centre-right coalition that includes the far-right Freedom Party of controversial poltician Geert Wilders.

    Although the Freedom Party will hold no cabinet seats, the new government has said it will support one of Wilder's demands, a ban on the full face veil.

    This has made the country's Muslims anxious.
