French education document sparks accusations of racism
Education authorities in western France have come under fire for alleged racism over a document issued to teachers designed to help them spot youngsters who might be tempted by jihad.
It said teachers should watch out for "Muslim clothes", "long uncut beards", "weight loss due to frequent fasting" and the "rejection of tattoos."
The text also told teachers to look out for children who took too close an interest in the origins of Islam.
