Front National's Le Pen on Charlie Hebdo shootings

Britain "should break with the model of communitarianism" and the rights of individuals, said the leader of France's Front National after the Charlie Hebdo shooting.

Marine Le Pen said the Schengen agreement, which allows open borders across most of Europe outside the UK and Ireland, should be suspended.

And she claimed that terrorism was "only a means of Islamic fundamentalism" which France had not faced up to, due to "political correctness and fear".

She was not invited to the display of international political leaders in Paris following the shootings which led to 17 deaths last week.

In a Daily Politics film from Strasbourg, Adam Fleming spoke to the leader of the Front National who explained France did not have a crime of blasphemy, and it had the "freedom to talk about religion and this won't change".
