Illegal Koranic school with up to 20 students found concealed inside Paris mosque
by Romina McGuinness
An unregistered Koranic school with the potential to indoctrinate children has been found within the walls of Al-Islah mosque – which is known for harbouring jihadists – during a police raid in Paris yesterday.
Three people, including an imam, were arrested in Villiers-sur-Marne, a suburb east of Paris, after police discovered up to 20 Muslim youngsters were enrolled in the illegal school, said France's Interior Minister, Bernard Cazeneuve.
Local authorities discovered the students, aged 6 to 12, were attending Koran classes at the mosque's illegal school every day.
