French President Emmanuel Macron has announced a series of measures designed to combat “Islamic separatism” in France – including new rules on foreign imams and education.

The measures will also aim to “fight foreign influence”and “promote the [positive] organisation of the Muslim faith”, Mr Macron said on a panel of ministers on Tuesday February 18, at an event in Mulhouse (Haut-Rhin).
