    As France comes to terms with last week's religiously motivated attacks across Paris, questions are being asked about what went wrong.

    Prime Minister Manuel Valls says France is now at war, among other things, with what he calls radical Islam. And the French interior minister says Paris will increase security co-operation with other countries to fight what he calls terrorism.

    But is that the answer? And who is fuelling religious radicalisation in France and elsewhere in Europe?
