The photo making social media users angry

Photos of French police making a Muslim woman on a beach in Nice remove part of her full-body beach wear following a recent so-called burkini ban have triggered angry reactions among some social media users in the Middle East.

French authorities in 15 towns have banned burkinis, citing public concern following recent terrorist attacks in the country.

The images have also fuelled a heated debate about the rise of Islamophobia in Europe.
