Muslims urged not to slaughter animals in the streets of France at Eid
by Siobhan McFadyen
Actress Brigitte Bardot has led calls for Muslims in France not to slaughter animals in public during this weekend's Eid celebrations.
The animal rights activist has urged the French government to intervene to prevent "barbarism" and work towards "appeasement" asking instead that followers of Islam make sacrifices by giving to the poor.
In France the government has been providing skips because many followers discard their carcasses to rot in the streets after they have killed them.
