Worshippers at French mosque threatened with shotgun

It has been reported that Muslims celebrating Eid-al-Adha at a mosque at Seynod in south-eastern France were subjected to racial abuse and threatened with a shotgun by a man who accused worshippers of occupying two parking spaces outside his business that were reserved for customers. Seynod’s Muslim community is currently using premises in an industrial estate while they wait for the construction of a purpose-built mosque, which has faced opposition from a residents’ association and local businesses.
