Call for Austrian ban on Isis symbols
Austria's Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner (ÖVP) has said that she wants to ban membership of the terrorist organisation Islamic State (Isis) and prohibit the wearing of Isis symbols as soon as possible.
"A free society cannot tolerate its tolerance being trampled on," she told the Austrian Press Agency.
She said that she supports a suggestion from Greens councillor Efgani Dönmez to create a law banning radical Islamic movements in Austria, but said that Austria's 1947 Prohibition Act - which is used to combat the resurgence of National Socialist activities - should be preserved as it is.
