France's Le Pen under investigation for tweeting grisly IS images
French far-right leader Marine Le Pen was under investigation Wednesday after tweeting graphic images of Islamic State atrocities, among them a photo of the decapitated body of US reporter James Foley.
The prosecutor's office in the western Paris suburb of Nanterre told AFP it had launched an investigation into "the dissemination of violent images" over the National Front (FN) leader's series of shock tweets.
The images were tweeted with the caption "This is Daesh" (an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group) and showed Foley's bloodied body with his decapitated head on his torso, a man on fire in a cage, and a victim being driven over by a tank.
