Breaking News

The disgraced French far-Right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen was given a three-month suspended sentence yesterday for calling the Nazi occupation "not particularly inhuman".

The founder of the National Front was found guilty of denying a crime against humanity and complicity in condoning war crimes.

Le Pen was also fined around £7,400. His lawyer said that the 79-year-old would appeal against the sentence.
