National Edition News cover for January 26, 2015 - ‘Apartheid’ in France’s Muslim neighborhoods: FILE - In this Friday Jan. 9, 2015 file photo, a French police officer stands guard outside the Grand Mosque as people arrive for Friday prayers, Paris. Firebombs and pigs' heads are being tossed at mosques and women in veils have been insulted in a surge of anti-Muslim acts since last week's murderous assault on the newsroom of a satirical Paris paper, according to a Muslim who tracks such incidents in France. France's large Muslim population risks becoming collateral damage in the aftermath of the three attacks by French radical Islamists who killed 17 people. Muslims in other European countries also won't be spared, some Muslim leaders and experts say. Concern about a backlash against Muslims was discussed Monday Jan. 13, 2015, during a meeting on counter-terrorism measures at the Interior Ministry. (AP Photo/Michel Euler, File)

FILE - This is a Friday, Oct. 17, 2014 file photo of Russian President Vladimir Putin and French President Francois Hollande, right, during a meeting on the sidelines of the ASEM summit of European and Asian leaders in Milan, northern Italy. EU sanctions against Russia over the crisis in Ukraine are cutting both ways and pinching some big European companies. But economic relief isn't likely any time soon, diplomats and analysts say: EU rules make the sanctions tough to overturn. France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine are trying to set up talks in Astana, Kazakhstan, toward easing the tensions behind sanctions that have hit Russia's economy, sent the ruble sinking and affected corporate Europe _ including banks, oil companies, machinery makers and food giants.
