A fascist group called "732 Generation Identitaire" occupied a mosque under construction.
The group of 60 young people picked up their name referring to the Battle of Tours in 732 AD that stopped the Muslim army, and organized the "action" to broadcast themselves.
Police forces emptied the mosque in the afternoon arresting three.

crisis Muslims become the biggest target of the far-right due to several reasons.
France hosts approximately 6 million Muslims - more than any other European country,.
According to Vatican's slip of tongue that created anxiety, the number of Muslims will increase greatly over the next 40 years.
Every visible factor becomes a target for aggression.
French administration managed to live down the caricature crisis by easing and finally making Muslims' reaction vanish into clean air.
Such news as "a pig head chopped off and left in front of a halal butcher" that appeared this summer get lost in between the lines.
