    Police swooped on the protesters near the capital’s Place de la Nation and took them in for identity checks.
    Eighteen women were among those arrested, officials say.
    Two people have been ordered to leave French territory following identity checks – one to then United Kingdom, the other to Belgium. One of them was arrested on the motorway between Amiens and Paris.
    An application for permission to hold the demonstration was turned down on Friday. Police said that the ban was because they feared violent clashes with counter-demonstrators

    French burqa ban comes into effect
    France has officially banned women from wearing full-face veils in public places, with a controversial new law coming into effect on Monday.
    Other European countries have drawn up bans on the burqa and the niqab but France - home to Europe's biggest Muslim population - is the first to risk stirring social tensions by putting one into practice.
    The law comes into effect at an already fraught moment in relations between the state and France's Muslim minority, with President Nicolas Sarkozy accused of stigmatising Islam to win back votes from a resurgent far right.
    Advertisement: Story continues below
    French officials estimate that only about 2000 women, from a total Muslim population estimated at between four and six million, wear the full-face veils that are traditional in parts of Arabia and South Asia.
    But many Muslims and rights watchdogs accuse the rightwing president of targeting one of France's most vulnerable groups to signal to anti-immigration voters that he shares their fear that Islam is a threat to French culture.
    Police on Saturday said they arrested 59 people, including 19 veiled women, who turned up for a banned protest in Paris over the law, while two more were detained as they attempted to travel to the rally from Britain and Belgium.
    Some critics worry the law may be hard to enforce, since it had to be drawn up without reference to religion to ban any kind of face covering in public and since police officers will not be allowed to remove women's head coverings.
    Anyone refusing to lift his or her veil to submit to an identity check can be taken to a police station. There, officers must try to persuade them to remove the garment, and can threaten fines.
    A woman who repeatedly insists on appearing veiled in public can be fined 150 euros ($A205) and ordered to attend re-education classes.
    There are much more severe penalties for anyone found guilty of forcing someone else to hide his or her face "through threats, violence, constraint, abuse of authority or power for reason of their gender".
    Clearly aimed at fathers, husbands or religious leaders who force women to wear face-veils, and applicable to offences committed in public or in private, the law imposes a fine of 30,000 euros ($A42,000) and a year in jail.
    Foreign extremists, including fugitive al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, have used the ban to argue France is at war with Islam, and have called for attacks.
    Belgium's parliament has approved a similar law, but has yet to enforce it. In the Netherlands far-right leaders have proposed a ban, and in Italy the right-wing Northern League is lobbying for a ban on the French model.
    It is hard to gauge the mood of the bulk of veil wearing French Muslim women, but two who agreed to speak to AFP - who gave their names as Aya and Umm Isra - said they would not challenge the ban in the street.
    But, they added, if they can't wear their niqabs they will likely go out far less often, suggesting the ban could create a hidden underclass.

    French Ban Muslim Women From Wearing Veils
    3 hours 25 mins ago
    (c) Sky News 2011
    A ban on full face veils has come into force in France, exposing Muslim women who wear the niqab or burka in public to fines of £132 (150 euros). Skip related content
    The country's five-million-strong Muslim minority is western Europe's largest, but fewer than 2,000 women are believed to wear a full face veil.

    Many Muslim leaders have said they support neither the veil nor the law banning it.

    French police arrested 59 people on Saturday who turned up for a banned protest over the veil ban, one of them on arrival in France from Britain, according to a police spokesman.

    The timing of the onset of the ban is all the more sensitive after France's ruling political party, President Nicolas Sarkozy's UMP, called a debate on the place of Islam in France.

    That is move some say risked stigmatising a portion of the population.

    Police received a guide last week to help implement the ban. It tells them not to remove veils by force and also notes the ban does not apply inside private cars.

    A Muslim property dealer Rachid Nekkaz is urging women to keep wearing the veil if they want to.

    He has urged supporters to go to Notre Dame cathedral in central Paris for a silent prayer during the day, and is also offering to help people pay the fines.

    Mr Nekkaz said in a webcast he was putting a property worth around two million euros up for sale to help fund his campaign.

    "I am calling on all free women who so wish, to wear the veil in the street and engage in civil disobedience," he said.
