France bans three 'radical' Islamic groups after attacks
France has banned three Islamic associations which ran a mosque in a Paris area shut down following November's jihadist attacks, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Wednesday.
The mosque at Lagny-sur-Marne was closed in early December as part of a huge security crackdown after 130 people were killed in a coordinated series of shootings and suicide bombings in Paris on November 13. The Islamic State group claimed the attacks.
"There is no place in the French Republic for groups which incite, and which call for terrorism or call for hate," Cazeneuve said as he announced the decision on Wednesday.
