In this photo taken Friday, March 9, 2012, a man walks past a butcher shop in Paris which prominently advertises that it sells halal meat. President Nicolas Sarkozy has lamented the decline of the traditional French butcher and now wants all meat clearly marked halal, kosher or French while Prime Minister Francois Fillon has suggested that the ritual slaughter of animals by Muslims and Jews is out of sync with modern times. With polls showing Sarkozy will lose to Socialist rival Francois Hollande in the upcoming presidential election, the president is racing after third-place extreme-right candidate Marine Le Pen's voters.
