'I only posted Isis videos because I liked the music'
A row in Switzerland over whether Muslim boys should be obliged to shake hands with female teachers refuses to go away.
The row erupted after a school in Therwil in the Swiss Canton of Basel-Country ruled that Muslim boys would no longer have to shake hands with female teachers.
The school reached their decision after two Syrian brothers - the sons of an imam - argued that being made to do so went against Islamic teachings which prohibit physical contact with a person of the opposite sex, aside from immediate family members.
