Roubaix Mosques

The high percentage of Muslims in the population of Roubaix was utilized by Al-Qaeda in the mid-1990’s to recruit for a French cell of the terror group, referred to as ‘Gang de Roubaix.’ For such a small city, Roubaix has a surprising number of mosques. Due to the lack of many public transport stops, it is hard to determine how relatively accessible Roubaix’s mosque are compared to other institutions.
