Muslim headscarf debate divides France, in climate of hate

When a far-right French official disrupted a regional council meeting to demand that a Muslim woman accompanying a group of schoolchildren be ordered to remove her headscarf, "in the name of our secular principles," her own child buried his head in her shoulder and cried. The scene has triggered a venomous national debate that is scrambling questions over the headscarf, Islam, immigration and radicalization.
