Almost half of refugees in Austria think religious law is more important than that of the country in which they live, according to a study published today.

The study of 900 migrants, by the Austrian Academy of Sciences, found 40 percent of migrants thought their religion always took precedence over secular laws.

A similar percentage thought Western people were too liberal in their lifestyles and had too much freedom.
