France: Annual Muslim convention

The Union of French Islamic Organisations' 26th annual congress opens in the capital, Paris, on Friday. "Religion and contemporary society" is the theme of this year's conference and thousands of Muslims from all over France and from other European countries are expected to attend.

The UOIF meeting is taking place in the northeastern Paris suburb of Le Bourget. Muslim scholars, experts on religion, academics and community groups have been invited.

Families are welcome, and apart from attending talks, they will be able to visit a 15,000 square metre exhibition space in which typical products from the Arab and Muslim world will be displayed. There will also be an exhibition on the life of the Prophet Mohammed.
