France cracks down on anorexia

France’s lower house of parliament has passed a widely-debated bill banning “excessively thin” fashion models.

Under the new draft law, agencies and fashion houses hiring undernourished models could be fined and may even face jail.

The measure is part of a wider crackdown on anorexia supported by the French government.
