French Muslim may soon not be able to wear the full veil

France's lower house of parliament has approved a ban on wearing the Islamic full veil in public.
It must now be ratified by the Senate in September to become law.
Opinion polls suggest the ban has overwhelming public support but critics point out that only a tiny minority of French Muslims wear the full veil. President Nicolas Sarkozy supports the ban.
