    Paris, France (CNN) -- The French senate approved Tuesday a law banning any veils that cover the face -- including the burqa, the full-body covering worn by some Muslim women -- making France the first European country to plan such a measure.

    The law passed by a vote of 246 to 1, with about 100 abstentions coming essentially from left-leaning politicians.

    The legislation was overwhelmingly approved by the lower house of parliament in July and will go into effect next spring.

    French people back the ban by a margin of more than four to one, the Pew Global Attitudes Project found in a survey earlier this year.
