Around 100 local French lawmakers attempted to block Muslims praying in a street north of Paris Friday and called on the government to ban what they see as an unacceptable use of public space.Prayers in the street have taken place every Friday in Clichy since March to protest the closure of a popular local mosque that had operated in a government building.Abdelkader, a Clichy resident who was praying in the street on Friday, told AFP that he wanted a "dignified" place to worship, as Christians and Jews enjoy in France, and that said nobody liked being in the street surrounded by police every Friday.
