A Paris librarian was suspended for two years without pay after he removed books about Muslims and the Arab world from the shelves of the branch where he worked. The man was disciplined for forging library cards with Arab-sounding names and removing as many as 300 books on extended loan. Colleagues said he had made anti-Muslim comments at work and told them he belonged to a Christian fundamentalist group.
