French Muslims Guard Church for Christmas Mass

French Muslims in the northern French city of Lens made a show of solidarity with the city's Christians, volunteering as guards at the local Catholic Church Christmas mass, French media reported.

The Muslims decided to guard the church after France's Interior Ministry said that "particular vigilance" should be practiced during Christmas mass.

"Before the Mass, we invited them to meals we share with people who live alone. And in the end, we will give them the light of Bethlehem, which we received from scouts," Lens Pastor Lemble said, calling the initiative "superb."

The head of the Union of Muslim Citizens of Pas-de-Calais, Abdelkader Aoussedj, said that he made the gesture after remembering how Egyptian Muslims defended Coptic Christian churches from fundamentalists in 2013
