Muslims sue satirical paper for blasphemy, MP for hate speech
French Muslims are taking satirical paper Charlie Hebdo to court for blasphemy over a front page insulting the Koran. In a separate case, a right-wing MP is being sued for accusing young Muslims of anti-Semitism.
A court in Strasbourg on Monday set the hearing into Charlie Hebdo's alleged blasphemy for 7 April.
The paper's premises were firebombed in 2011 after it published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.
