A policeman on duty at Rouen Cathedral on July 27, 2016France's prime minister said Friday he would consider a temporary ban on foreign financing of mosques, urging a "new model" for relations with Islam after a spate of jihadist attacks. Manuel Valls, under fire for perceived security lapses around the attacks, also admitted a "failure" in the fact that one of the jihadists who stormed a church and killed a priest on Tuesday had been released with an electronic tag pending trial. Both Valls and Cazeneuve have faced calls to resign after the second jihadist attack in less than a fortnight raised questions over France's vigilance and preparedness.

File photo of a tractor mowing a field on the site where EDF Energy's Hinkley Point C nuclear power station will be constructed in BridgwaterBy Nina Chestney and William Schomberg LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's new government has cast doubt over a project with French energy company EDF to build the UK's first new nuclear plant in decades, delaying a decision on the plan just a day after the company's board voted to proceed. In a surprise move, the government said it wanted to give the Hinkley Point C project further consideration, postponing approval until early autumn and leading to concerns the plant's construction will be pushed back further. The pouring of the first concrete at Hinkley Point C is scheduled for mid-2019 but the 18 billion pound plant's start-up date has been delayed several times due to regulatory hurdles, the fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan and EDF's deteriorating financial position.
