Pro-and Anti-hijab demos outside French Embassy

Muslim women dressed in the hijab protested outside the French Embassy in Knightsbridge against the coming into force of a law banning the wearing of a face veil in public. The far-right English Defence League staged its own counter protest outside the Embassy in support of the ban.
