President Emmanuel Macron on Friday described Islam as "a religion that is in crisis all over the world today" as he made keenly-awaited keynote address on battling Islamic radicalism in France.

He said Islam was in crisis due to "an extreme hardening" of positions. He announced the government would this year present a draft law aimed at strengthening secularism in France against what Macron described as "Islamist separatism" in the country.
