Muslims in the Parisian suburb of Clichy-la-Garenne are unhappy with the location of their state-sponsored mosque: they want to be closer to downtown. In protest, they have been praying illegally every week in the streets of Clichy.
A group of local notables — native French, that is — decided they’d had enough, and organized an intervention during they street prayers. The confrontation between the “seculars” and the Muslims became quite heated. The event was unusual in that elected politicians were among its prominent leaders.
