Paris attacks aftermath: French police arrest 54 people for ‘defending or glorifying terrorism’

At least 54 people have been detained by police in France for “defending or glorifying terrorism” in the wake of last week’s attacks in Paris.

The arrests are part of a broader French crackdown on perceived hate speech and extremism seeing a government push for tougher anti-terrorism measures.

Anti-semitic French comedian Dieudonné was among those detained after he seemed compared himself to the supermarket gunman who murdered four people at a kosher supermarket, Amedy Coulibaly.

Dieudonné M’Bala M’bala, 48, who was being held for questioning at a Paris police station, could face possible charges of “apology for terrorism”.
