Austrian ambassador downplays fears of kosher-halal meat register
 

The Austrian ambassador to Israel has downplayed reports of a plan by an Austrian state to require Jews and Muslims to register before they can buy kosher and halal meat.
Martin Weiss said politicians in Lower Austria would work with religious communities to allay their fears.

Gottfried Waldhäusl said it was needed "from an animal welfare point of view".
However, officials have ruled out requiring Jews to register to buy kosher meat.
