Muslims in Europe, Part III

Europe's Muslim population has doubled in the last decade, and an estimated 500,000 new immigrants -- most of them from Muslim nations -- arrive every year. In the third of a five-part series, NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports on a restive new generation of French-Muslim youths in the "high rise hells" outside Paris. See photos and learn more about each report in the series.
