The region of Bremen in northern Germany on Friday said it would be the second of the country's 16 states to recognise Muslim holidays.

"I am delighted because Islam and Muslims are part of our city and part of our life," said the mayor of the city state, Jens Böhrnsen, after signing the deal with representatives of the local Muslim community.

The agreement signed reflects "mutual recognition and respect of mutual values," added the mayor.
