France's top court reinstates ban on comic Dieudonne


The highest court in France reinstated a ban on a show by controversial comic Dieudonne M'bala M'bala, just before it was due to open.
Interior Minister Manuel Valls appealed to the Council of State to intervene minutes after a judge in the city of Nantes overturned the ban.
The comic has seven convictions for anti-Semitic hate speech.
Shocked fans booed outside the concert hall in Nantes, where more than 5,000 people had been due to see the show.

 'Peddlers of hate'
Some of the fans outside the Zenith gave Dieudonne's trademark quenelle gesture, which is regarded by many as an inverted Nazi salute.
Some fans brandished pineapples. One of the comic's most notorious songs, Shoananas, roughly translates as Pineapple-Holocaust and mocks commemoration of the Nazi extermination of the Jews.
French media who have sent reporters to previous performances of The Wall say it contained a string of derogatory references to Jews...."
