Marine Le Pen loses immunity from prosecution

The European Parliament has removed French far-right leader Marine Le Pen's immunity from prosecution after she tweeted pictures of IS violence.

Ms Le Pen is under investigation in France for posting three graphic images of IS executions on Twitter in December 2015, including the beheading of American journalist James Foley.

Her position as an MEP has so far meant she could not be prosecuted.

Ms Le Pen is currently running to be French president.
