In what German police describe as an 'administrative offence', a bus
driver in the city of Emden refused to allow a pregnant woman wearing a
niqab to board the bus. The offence carries a maximum of £8500 penalty.
Local reports have it that the woman was travelling with her husband and
he reported the matter to police and to the local council. The city
authority said: 'This type of thing cannot be allowed to happen and must
not be repeated.'
