Attack against: Faith
Area of case: Islamist / Private
During their Friday prayers, muslims in Clichy gathered in front of the city hall on the street. The imam, who directed this prayer, chanted: "Fight the infidels without exception, as they fight you without exception, and know that Allah is with the pious." (9:36 of the Koran).
It appears the event was neither authorized nor forbidden by the city hall or the prefecture. However, a disturbance of public order appeared to have been tolerated by the police, who were directing traffic.
