France shuts down another mosque for 'condoning violent jihad'
A mosque in the eastern suburbs of Paris was ordered closed on Tuesday because authorities deemed it "a threat to security".
The mosque, located in Torcy in the Seine-et-Marne department, was deemed by authorities to be "a threat to public order".
Interior Minister Matthias Fekl said the mosque had "become a place where radical ideology was advocated".
"Some of the preaching was openly hostile to France's laws and was inciting hate to other religious communities, primarily Shia Muslims and Jews."
