'Distinguish between terrorism and Islam' says Mogherini

'Challenge also a cultural one' says EU foreign minister

(ANSA) - Brussels, January 8 - Terrorism and Islam are not the same, European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini said Thursday.
    "We must always keep the word terrorism distinct from Islam," she said in the Latvian capital of Riga.
    "We face a political and intelligence challenge, but also a cultural one," she said.
    Her remarks came the day after a suspected Islamist commando stormed the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly, gunning down 12 people including four of France's top cartoonists and two policemen.
