    France's president has opened a new wing in Paris' Louvre museum dedicated to Islamic art.

    Francois Hollande took the opportunity to talk about Islam's role in French society and those who would undermine it.
    The new wing will house the breadth and creativity of Islamic civilizations throughout the centuries.

    Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland reports from Paris.
