France Busts 54 for ‘Glorifying’ Terror


dieudonne-me28099bala-me28099balaDieudonné M’bala M’bala, a French comedian notorious for his anti-Semitic content, has been arrested for being an “apologist for terrorism.” He suggested in a recent Facebook post that he was sympathetic with the gunmen in the attack on Charlie Hebdo.

“Tonight, as far as I’m concerned, I feel like Charlie Coulibaly,” he wrote on Monday, which was a mix of the magazine’s name and that of one of the shooters, Amedy Coulibaly.

Since the attack last week, 54 people have been arrested for defending or glorifying terrorism, the Paris prosecutor’s office has announced.

Meanwhile, in Turkey, the office of a newspaper attempting to print an insert showing solidarity for Charlie Hebdo was raided by police. Read more at The Guardian.
