Controversial French comic on trial for ‘defending terrorism’

Controversial French comic Dieudonne M’bala M’bala has gone on trial charged with “defending terrorism” in a Facebook post made after the three-day terror spree in Paris last month. The comic, known by his stage name Dieudonne, made a Facebook posting which said “I feel like Charlie Coulibaly.” The post, which has since been taken down, merges the names of Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine where two gunmen killed 12 people, and that of Amedy Coulibaly, who prosecutors say killed four hostages at a kosher supermarket and a policewoman. All three gunmen were killed in nearly simultaneous raids by security forces Jan. 9.
