A woman with her face covered by a niqab is taken away by police officers in Paris on Monday, the first day of France's ban on Islamic face veils. The law was met with a burst of defiance, as several veiled women arrived at Notre Dame Cathedral and two were detained for taking part in an unauthorized protest. France is the first country to ban the veils anywhere in public. (Associated Press)
