Around 60 French conservatives in the Paris suburb of Clichy gathered to protest Muslims praying in the street which has been going on every Friday for the last nine months.
The conservatives, led by local mayor Remi Muzeau sang the French national anthem, the Marseillaise, in defiance of the Muslims who have taken over the market square every Friday for nearly a year.
Muzeau was joined by other members of Les Républicains, the party of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, wearing tricolore sashes, including the president of the greater Paris region of Île-de-France, Valerie Pecresse, Le Parisien reports.
Journalist Théo Maneval witnessed the events posting video footage on Twitter and commenting: “Amazing scene: no dialogue, but elected representatives who sing the Marseillaise at the same time as the prayer begins. Both groups face to face, but do not speak.”
