France's National Front to sue Madonna over Le Pen swastika
July 16 , 2012
France's far-right National Front is suing Madonna after an image at the singer's Paris concert depicted party leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika imposed on her face.
The image for the video accompanying the song Nobody Knows Me was followed by another resembling Adolf Hitler as Madonna performed at the Stade de France in Paris.
The video had appeared earlier in Madonna's 30-nation MDNA world tour and sparked a warning from Le Pen that she would consider legal action.
Le Pen’s party has tried to remove extremist elements and crack down on anti-Semitism.
The National Front won just two seats in the 577-member National Assembly in last month's general election.
