A number of women have been arrested in France after protesting over the country’s ban on the veil. The law, which came into force today, means anyone wearing a niqab or burkha in a public space can be fined — with bigger penalties for anyone who forces a woman to cover her face. Sky’s Europe correspondent Alex Rossi reports.
A dog rescued from Japan’s tsunami has been reunited with her owner. Two-year-old Ban spent three weeks at sea and survived by drinking sea water. Her owner recognised her by her brown collar on television at an animal shelter after she was rescued. Ban was spotted on the roof of a house being dragged out to sea.
