France has banned three Islamic cultural associations which ran a mosque in the Paris area that was shut down following November's militant attacks on the capital, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Wednesday.

"There is no place in the French republic for groups which provoke and which call for terrorism or call for hate," Cazeneuve said.
