France suspends plans for Halal prison meals
France's highest administrative body has suspended a plan to provide Halal meals for Muslim inmates in one prison in the country's east.
The council of state ruled on Wednesday that providing Halal meat at Saint-Quentin-Fallavier prison in the city of Grenoble was impractical "owing to its financial cost and high needs for organisation".
France's Justice Minister Christiane Taubiral, who had been contesting the plan since 2013, argued it would infringe on France's rules on secularism that ban religious expression in public places.
