Understanding 'laicité': The ins and outs of state secularism - French Connections
 
05:55
Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN This week we take a closer look at a concept that is fundamental to life in France: "laicité". Quite literally it’s translated as secularism, the separation of church and state, but France’s brand of secularism is quite particular and controversial. A product of French philosophy and history, "laicité" was signed into law in 1905. The Law on the Separation of the Churches and State requires the government to remain neutral in terms of faith, while at the same time safeguarding everyone’s freedom to practice their own religion. Concretely, religion is banned from state matters and public schools. But the application of secularism in practice is subject to some controversy. Critics say state secularism is too extreme and is increasingly used to stigmatize Muslims. Meanwhile, proponents say laicité allows us to live together in harmony and protects our freedom.

State TV released images of Bashar al Assad walking into work, in the presidency building in central Damascus. And its military was defiant. "Three treacherous acts of aggressions were carried out at 3:55am by the US, France and Britain. //Our air defences responded efficiently and downed most of the rockets. While some hit scientific research buildings, the damage was only material. Other missiles were diverted before they could hit a military location in HomsAnd as they brushed off the damage as material only, it fell to Damascus's most important ally, Russia, to warn of wider ramifications. Sergey Rudskoy, Chief of Russian General Staff Main Operations Directorate:"This American aggression shows us that they aren''t interested in an objective investigation of the alleged chemical atatck, but only in disrupting the peace process and destabilising the Middle East Back in Damascus, civilians - and ardent regime supporters - celebrated what they said was a clear victory by their government. "I came to congratulate the Syrian air defence forces, who managed to bring down your missiles, Trump. You can''t shake us, the Syrian people.""These strikes have given us more determination and persistence. It hasn''t affected us, we''ve seen worse than this. Whatever the mood here in the capital, it remains to be seen precisely to what extend these strikes have been able to degrade the capacity of the regime to carry out chemical attacks - on rebel areas.

Tourists often complain about how rude they can be. And yet, etiquette is a big deal in France. There’s a whole network of rules governing just about everything, from how to say hello to how to behave at a dinner party.

EXCLUSIVE - Iraq: On the road to Mosul with Iraqi, Kurdish forces

Subscribe to France 24 now : http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN A few weeks before Iraqi and Kurdish forces launched their offensive to retake Mosul from Islamic State group jihadists, our reporters in Iraq witnessed the final preparations for the strategic battle. FRANCE 24 brings you an exclusive report, filmed at the end of August in northern Iraq. Our reporters travelled to the Kurdish front line, where block by block, the Peshmerga have retaken eleven villages around Mosul, the largest city in northern Iraq and the stronghold of the Islamic State (IS) group since June 2014. Our team also went to Qayyarah, a town located around 60 km south of Mosul, where the Iraqi army has set up its rear area position and was busy preparing for the offensive on Mosul. The operation to drive out thousands of jihadists from the north Iraqi city began overnight on Monday October 17. The crucial battle could last "several weeks, maybe months", French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Tuesday. It will be "a difficult fight'", US President Barack Obama admitted. FRANCE 24's reporters witnessed the offensive's final planning, alongside Kurdish and Arab troops, rival forces now joined to fight a common enemy. As the noose tightens around them, the IS group jihadists use all sorts of tactics - suicide attacks, car bombings, landmines and torched oil wells - to repel the offensive on Mosul and thwart the US air strikes. ►► On France24.com: Iraqi coalition comes together to fight IS group in Mosul, but can unity last?  Visit our website : http://www.france24.com Subscribe to our YouTube channel : http://f24.my/youtubeEN Like us on Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/FRANCE24.English Follow us on Twitter : https://twitter.com/France24_en

Video: After the war, life slowly returns to Mosul
 
17:16
Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN FRANCE 24's reporters went back to Mosul, almost three months after Iraqi forces liberated the country’s second city from the grip of the Islamic State (IS) group. The scene of the most violent urban warfare since World War II, Mosul suffered extensive damage. In the west of the city – among the ruins and landmines, and the group trauma of its inhabitants – life is gradually returning. The bombings of the US-led coalition practically razed Mosul’s old city, now a no-go zone. Beneath the tons of rubble lie thousands of landmines and hundreds of bodies. The Al-Nuri Mosque, one of Mosul’s most famous monuments, was destroyed by the jihadists, who preferred to blow it up rather than concede victory to the Iraqi forces. In the rest of West Mosul, one of the areas that suffered the most from the fighting, there is no water or electricity. The inhabitants do their best to get by from day to day. With the exception of a few shops, businesses are closed and there is no work to be had. The only option is to participate in the clean-up of the city, to carry rubble under a blazing sun for days at time for a few dinars. All of these people have a story to tell. Those who stayed in town lived for three long years under the jihadists' yoke. Those three years are lost years, especially for the youngest. Schools remained open but no parents sent their children there, except those who had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) group. Ibrahim, a headmaster, saw his intake of pupils fall from 600 to just 12. The classes had become brainwashing sessions: the youngest children learned how to count ammunition and grenades, while the older ones studied geometry by calculating trajectories of mortar shells. Rebuilding the city is merely the beginning of the challenge ahead for Mosul. ►► On France24.com: Iraq's Mosul: Rebuilding a city fractured by sectarian mistrust To meet the residents of West Mosul, the only solution is to be escorted by the men of the federal police. Armed like soldiers and wearing helmets, they move only in groups, with armoured vehicles. In these conditions, it’s difficult to approach the thorny subject of sectarian tensions. But these tensions can be seen in the looks of the civilians and the attitude of the police. Mosul is a predominantly Sunni city, which explains why the IS group was able to set up there so quickly in 2014. Back then, tensions between the Shiite central government – led at the time by Nuri al-Maliki – and the Sunni residents were at their peak. Three years and a deadly war later, Mosul finds itself in the same situation: a Sunni city secured by mainly Shiite forces. The federal police display Iraqi flags on their armoured vehicles and do their best to appear neutral, but the mistrust is palpable and in some districts, the Shiite militias act as the real police. Ultimately, some power-sharing arrangement will have to be found, otherwise violence could return to Mosul. http://www.france24.com/en/reporters Visit our website: http://www.france24.com Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://f24.my/youtubeEN Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FRANCE24.English Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/France24_en

Since President Mohamed Morsi was ousted by the Egyptian Army in July, many of the estimated 250,000 Syrian refugees living in Egypt are feeling the backlash. They're being increasingly stigmatised, accused of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood - the Islamic organisation that formed the backbone of Morsi's deposed government. Some State and private-owned media are accused of whipping up anti-Syrian feeling, after some Syrians took part in the pro-Morsi protests following his removal from power. 09/17/2013 FOCUS An exclusive in-depth report from a FRANCE24 correspondent, followed by comment and analysis with the author and the anchor in the newsroom in Paris.
