France bans protest over anti-Islam movie

France has a five million Muslim population, the largest in Europe.



Paris: France on Thursday banned a protest against the screening of an anti-Islam US movie which has triggered outrage across the Muslim world, Xinhua reported.

According to news channel BFMTV, Paris police banned a planned protest outside Paris Mosque Saturday as a precautionary measure after calls circulated on social networks to protest over the movie.

Police, last Sunday, arrested about a hundred participants during a demonstration near the US embassy in Paris.

On Wednesday, Paris said it would temporarily close its embassies and schools in 20 countries Friday after a French magazine published Prophet Mohammad`s cartoons.
