Pork or nothing for pupils in far-right towns: Le Pen
School cafeterias will stop serving non-pork options to children in towns won by the far-right National Front party in local elections last week, its leader Marine Le Pen told media on Friday.
Le Pen reignited a longstanding controversy on Friday when she told a French radio station that in towns won by the party's candidates school cafeterias will no longer serve non-pork substitution meals, which generally go to Muslim and Jewish children.
"We will accept no religious requirements in the school lunch menus," Le Pen told RTL radio. "There is no reason for religion to enter into the public sphere."
