Dutch calls for ban on religious slaughter

Animal rights activists and a far-right party join forces to ban kosher and halal slaughter methods.

    In the Netherlands, an animal rights party and the far-right Freedom Party are pushing for a ban on kosher and halal slaughter methods which critics say inflict unacceptable suffering on animals.

    The parties say ritual slaughter should only be allowed on the proviso that Jewish and Muslim groups can prove the process is humane.
