France to deport radical Muslim clerics
French Interior Minister Manuel Valls said on Tuesday that Paris is set to deport a string of radical imams as part of a fight against "global jihadism".
"Several radical foreign preachers will be expelled in the coming days," Valls told a Brussels conference called to tackle extremism in Europe, without identifying any of the individuals concerned.
"I don't confuse this radical Islam with the Islam of France but there is a religious environment, there are Salafist groupings, who are involved in a political process, whose aim is to monopolize cultural associations and schools," he added.
