City of Nijmegen: Official apologizes to woman with niqab banned from playground

A woman wearing a niqab has received an apology from the municipality of Nijmegen on Sunday afternoon. The woman and her family were visiting "De Leemkuuil" playground.

A discussion arose in the playground about the woman's garment in connection with the prohibition of face-covering clothing, which came into force in the Netherlands on 1 August.

The playground, however, does not fall under the so-called burqa ban, after consultation with the police and the municipality. Afterwards apologies were offered to the woman.
