    (ANSAmed) - PARIS, JUNE 15 - The rector of the Grand Mosque of Paris and head of the French Muslim Council, Dalil Boubakeur, on Monday called for churches that were no longer being used to be made available to Muslims for worship.

    ''It's the same God,'' he told Europe 1 radio. ''The rites are similar. I think that Muslims and Christians can live alongside one another.'' (ANSAmed).
