French minister: OK to ban Dieudonne's show
France's interior minister said Monday that local officials have the right to ban shows on a national tour of a comic whose performances are considered anti-Semitic.

 

The unusual move by minister Manuel Valls targets Dieudonne M'Bala M'Bala, who has performed for decades but is now especially known for popularizing a hand gesture that's been used by sports stars such as Nicolas Anelka. Dieudonne takes his show on the road this week after performances at his regular venue in Paris, a theater he long owned. (AP)
