Law enforcement officers arrived on call at a shopping centre North of Copenhagen, where there was a fight between two women.

She was told she would have to pay 1,000 kroner (134 Euros) after she refused to remove the veil.

Both women received fines for public disorder, he said.

According to paper a 28-year-old woman is Friday afternoon as the first in Denmark aimed at the masking ban that entered into force on 1 August. She was asked to remove the niqab or leave the public place.

At the protest, Reuters reports that many defied the new ban by wearing one of the prohibited veils - the niqab, which covers every part of the face apart from the eyes. They took a photograph of the woman and obtained security camera footage of the incident.

A leaked ad forces DJI to confirm Mavic 2 drone specs
However, it does not reveal how much the drones will cost and says customers should visit the Argos website for more information. We'll have to wait and see, but if all of this comes to fruition there are some big product launches on the way from DJI.

Civil liberties campaigners and Muslim women's advocacy groups have argued that the ban is discriminatory.

"Whilst some specific restrictions on the wearing of full face veils for the purposes of public safety may be legitimate, this blanket ban is neither necessary nor proportionate and violates women's rights to freedom of expression and religion", said Fotis Filippou, Amnesty's deputy Europe director.

On Wednesday, hundreds of people took to the streets of Copenhagen in protest with demonstrators openly wearing facial coverings in opposition to the new law. The country's "Burqa Ban" also outlaws other accessories covering the face like balaclavas, masks and false beards.

"All women should be free to dress as they please and to wear clothing that expresses their identity or beliefs".

First-time offenders risk a fine of 1,000 kroner while repeat offences could trigger fines of up to 10,000 kroner (£1,200) or a jail sentence of up to six months.
