Legendary singer Bob Dylan has been charged in France with inciting hatred over a 2012 interview in which he compared Croatians to Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. The Paris prosecutor's office revealed that charges of "public insult and inciting hate" were filed in mid-November. The charges stemmed from a legal action by a Croatian community over the interview in Rolling Stone magazine. A lawyer for the group, Ivan Jurasinovic, said they only want Dylan to apologise to the Croatian people for the comments. The country has strict laws punishing hate speech.
