Education authorities in western France have come under fire for alleged racism over a document issued to teachers designed to help them spot youngsters who might be tempted by jihad.
It said teachers should watch out for « Muslim clothes », « long uncut beards », « weight loss due to frequent fasting » and the « rejection of tattoos. »
The text also told teachers to look out for children who took too close an interest in the origins of Islam.
