Fast food for Muslims in Paris

Islamic dietary laws have long kept many Muslims away from Mcdonald's and Burger King. Now a new fast-food restaurant in Paris allows devout Muslims to snack on burgers in accordance with the Koran. Long limited in their choice of eating-out options to kebab shops and halal meat outlets in the country, France's large Muslim population got a new alternative in the French capital last month. "Buerger King Muslim" or BKM, a new fast-food restaurant in the eastern Paris suburb of Clichy-Sous-Bois, offers the standard fast-food fare: burgers, fries, sundaes and doughnuts. The difference is that the beef and chicken burgers here are halal -- meat slaughtered in accordance with Islamic dietary laws. [Deutsche Welle]
