Dieudonné given suspended sentence over Facebook post on Charlie Hebdo attack

A Paris court on Wednesday handed controversial French comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala a two-month suspended prison sentence for being “an apologist for terrorism” over a Facebook posting following the Charle Hebdo attack.

The latest charges against the comedian, known simply as Dieudonné, stemmed from a Facebook comment posted after the January 7 Charlie Hebdo attack, in which he claimed, “I feel like Charlie Coulibaly”.
