France has received 9,000 tips on Islamic extremism

PARIS – French President Francois Hollande says that authorities have received 9,000 tips related to Islamic extremism through a dedicated hotline and a website.

France officials believe some 600 Muslims have left the country for Syria and Iraq, but the thousands of tips offer a hint of the scale of the concern over religious radicalism in France. Hollande was quick to note that not all the tips were linked to genuine problems.
