Bob Dylan faces French race probe

Bob Dylan has been placed under judicial investigation in France for allegedly provoking ethnic hatred of Croats.

It follows a legal complaint lodged by local Croats over an interview the American rock star gave to Rolling Stone magazine.

In it the singer compared the relationship between Croats and Serbs to that of Jews and Nazis.

The judicial investigation is standard procedure in such cases, it means the authorities are taking it seriously, but it may not result in a charge.
