France: Le Pen takes down images
FAR-RIGHT Front National leader Marine Le Pen removed an image of the beheading of murdered US reporter James Foley from her Twitter feed yesterday after his family protested.
French authorities are investigating the tweets, which Ms Le Pen had posted in response to a journalist who made an analogy between her Islamophobic party and Isis.
She claimed to have been trying to show the difference between the two, but the effort backfired, drawing widespread condemnation.
Mr Foley’s family said: “We are deeply disturbed by the unsolicited use of Jim for Le Pen’s political gain” and demanded the photos be taken down immediately.
