French MP says UK is 'losing fight against Islamic extremists'
The architect of France's burka ban has accused Britain of "losing the battle against Islamic extremism" by failing to introduce one of its own.
Jacques Myard, a senior member of President Nicolas Sarkozy's ruling UMP party, said relaxed UK policies had "opened the door to terrorism".
He added: "Allowing women to exclude themselves from society by wearing the full Islamic veil makes radicals extremely comfortable, and Britain should realise this."
