French prosecutors have filed preliminary charges against far-right leader Marine Le Pen for tweeting brutal images of Daesh terror group's violence.
"Daesh is this!" Le Pen wrote in a caption, using an Arabic acronym for ISIS, in response to a TV journalist drawing a comparison between the extremists and the French far-right.
Le Pen, who lost the 2016 presidential election to Emmanuel Macron, posted the three images to Twitter several weeks after IS terrorists killed 130 people in Paris in November 2015. Le Pen faces up to three years in prison and 75,000 euros ($90,000) in fines if the case goes to trial and she is convicted.
