MEPs revoke Marine Le Pen's immunity over violent Isis images

MEPs have voted to lift Marine Le Pen’s parliamentary immunity to allow French prosecutors to take legal action against the far-right leader for tweeting gruesome images of killings by Islamic State militants.

Members of the European parliament’s legal affairs committee voted on Tuesday by an overwhelming majority to waive Le Pen’s immunity, after a request from the prosecutor of Nanterre in west Paris.

The prosecutor opened an inquiry under a French law banning the distribution of violent images or those inciting terrorism.
