France seeks new chapter in Muslim relations

The president of the French Council of the Muslim Faith Anouar Kbibech speaks to journalists on August 29, 2016 in ParisFrance’s government sought Monday to open a new chapter in relations with the country’s Muslims following a summer scarred by jihadist attacks and a ban on burkinis that ratcheted up communal tensions. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve met with senior Muslim representatives and agreed that the effort to revive ties will include the creation of an Islamic foundation, funded solely with money from within France. Around 30 towns have banned the burkini from their beaches, with some mayors linking the bans to the July 14 jihadist lorry attack in Nice that killed 86 and the murder of a Catholic priest near Rouen by Islamic State sympathisers.
