The French mainstream right UMP party is to expel the mayor of a small southern town, who has called for Islam to be banned in France, RFI reported.
Former president Nicolas Sarkozy condemned the call on Friday.

Anyone practicing the religion should be "immediately escorted to the border", he added.
