The rector of the Paris mosque, the head of France's Muslim community, denounced the fashion house Chanel after verses from the Koran were embroidered on the low-cut bodices of some dresses from its summer collection, AFP reports from Paris.

Dalil Boubakeur complained that the clothes were profane. He added: 'Associating the Koran with a woman's bust is inexcusable. The Koran is sacred.' Chanel asked newspapers to stop publishing photos of a revealing dress worn by the German model Claudia Schiffer and Chanel's designer, Karl Lagerfeld, has apologised to Indonesian Muslims who were the first to complain.
