France: Jew prevented from voting because of his kippah

Via La Dépêche:

Avraham Weill, a rabbi from Toulouse, says he was not allowed to vote in this week's local elections because he was wearing a kippah.  The polling station was located at a a school and Weill was requested to remove his kippah in the name of laïcité (French secularism).

Update from reader:

The rabbi was stopped from voting by two far left militants, a woman and her husband.  Other people in the polling station protested and the rabbi was finally able to vote.
