A documentary on radical Muslims has struck a nerve in France months after a devastating attack in its capital, and sparked a debate about freedom of expression.Culture Minister Fleur Pellerin took the advice of the national commission to bar under-18s from seeing the film, a rare move for a documentary. The run-up to the classification decision was accompanied by days of debate in France over the threat of the film being seen as condoning terrorism, or whether limiting audiences amounted to an attack on freedom of expression.The film shows daily life under Sharia law in the northern Mali cities of Gao and Timbuktu which fell under the control of militants in 2012, and is interspersed with images of Daesh (ISIS) group propaganda and videos, some of which are extremely violent.
