France 'sees drop' in Islamophobic attacks
There was a decline in Islamophobic attacks on Muslims in France since January, the country's National Observatory Against Islamophobia claimed on Thursday.
However, the group warned that growing "cyber hate" against Muslims remained a serious issue.
Some 149 anti-Muslim acts were recorded between January and September 2016 compared to 323 incidents in the same period last year, according to Abdallah Zekri, head of the organization.
Ninety-seven threats against Muslims were also recorded, compared to 227 in 2015 -- a fall of 57.3 percent.
