More than 50 verbal and physical attacks have been recorded against Muslims in France in the past week in what religious leaders in the country have called an "unprecedented" rise in Islamophobic attacks.
Agence France-Presse reports that the Islamophobia Observatory of the French Council of the Muslim Faith, which monitors such incidents, has gathered information from police forces across the country.
Observatory president Abdallah Zekri said 21 physical incidents had been recorded, including bullets being fired at a mosque and objects being thrown, along with 33 threats. And, as the figure does not include Paris or its suburbs, Mr Zekri said he believes the number could be much higher.
The figures from the past week alone are almost half the total number of incidents recorded in the first nine months of last year.
Mr Zekri has now called for security around mosques to be stepped up further.
