France’s Minister of the Interior Bernard Cazeneuve (C) meets with Vice President of the French Muslim council CFCM Abdallah Zekri (L) and CFCM Head Anouar Kbibech (R) at the Ministry of the Interior on August 1, 2016 in Paris. Muslims across France were invited to participate in Catholic ceremonies on July 31 to mourn a priest whose murder by jihadist teenagers sparked fears of religious tension. Masses will be celebrated across the country in honour of octogenarian Father Jacques Hamel, whose throat was cut in his church on August 2 in the latest jihadist attack on France. “We are all Catholics of France,” said Anouar Kbibech, the head of the French Muslim council CFCM, in an expression of togetherness in the wake of the attack. / AFP PHOTO / JACQUES DEMARTHON /
