A municipality in Sweden has vowed to ban religiously slaughtered meat from school menus after the centre-right Moderate Party formed a coalition government with the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats.
The three-year action plan for the town of Staffanstorp outside Malmö, published on Tuesday, betrays the strong influence of the Sweden Democrats, and is likely to be used as ammunition by Moderate party members who oppose cooperation with the populist party on a national level.
