Nice attack: Prosecutor calls for ban on Paris Match photos

The Paris prosecutor has called for Paris Match magazine to be pulled from newsstands after it published CCTV images of the 14 July attack in Nice.

A lorry killed 86 people when it drove into crowds celebrating Bastille Day.

The publication of the images has angered a victims’ group, which accused the magazine of morbid sensationalism.

The magazine was still on sale on Thursday hours before a judge was due to rule on the request.

The prosecutor asked the court to “order the (magazine’s) withdrawal from sale” as well as a “ban on publication in all formats, particularly online”.

    I understand this is the French government approved version of the picture they have deemed acceptable for publishing.

    “Lorry” sure is a popular name in Europe for Islamic terrorists.

      This mass murdering religious fanatic lorry telling police it was an ice cream delivery truck (sans any form of refrigeration or ice cream) and parked all blistering hot Bastille Day in one spot for no apparent reason …………….

    I’d like to believe this is really just all about a victim’s group’s concerns over “morbid sensationalism”, I really would.

    • bverwey

      What victim group are they referring to? The dead ones or the “asian” ones?

      • Watchman

        Muslim Victims Of Islamophobia, obviously. The most discriminated group in the West, and one most deserving of our sympathy over and above those killed by ‘lone wolves’ and those left without their loved ones after an attack by the ‘lone wolves’. /sarc

    Sunday night I listened to a radio show that had a terrorism experts on . When an ex-muslim exposed the quranic verses to prove the 1400 year war against the world to kill all the non-muslism .
    The expert pointed out that all religions have terrorists the used the holy book to attack people, then they said that the quran does not tell muslims to kidnap a journalist and video record beheading them ram a truck in the crowd.
    Right , muhammad knew there would be diesel powered truck and video recorders where it would be wrong and unislamic to tell his followers to use them one day.

    They really fear being killed right here in the West , So they join the charade to excuse away jihad and tell people that ISIS has nothing to do with islam or being muslims.
    Won’t be long before Justin shuts down the Government on ramadan or closes the House on Fridays for his Muslim MP’s to go to mosques .

      Its not fear of them. Its their cultural Marxist agenda. They can not allow any challenge to the idea that Islamic culture is equal or superior to decadent western culture and as per the Frankfurt schools strategy they must constantly be attacking Christianity, in this case by equating it to Islam.

      Don’t give him any ideas.

      They are already forgotten by the french police state, down the memory hole with them.

    The truth will set you free, except if you live in a socialist police state like France where the truth is verboten.
