A new law has come into effect in France banning prayer in public spaces across the country.

The ban comes in the wake far-right protests over the practice - common among Muslims - of spreading out prayer mats in the streets.

The government has provided worshipers with temporary buildings to use.

Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland has this report from Paris.
