France’s top administrative body has shut down a comedian considered to be anti-Semitic.

The Council Of State ruled in an urgent decision that the comic cannot perform in the city of Nantes tonight.

The Paris decision overturned a Nantes court ruling hours earlier that had over-ridden the original ban the city had imposed on the show – by Dieudonne M’Bala M’Bala.

The Council cited a risk to public safety and a threat to fundamental French values.

Angry crowds outside the theatre in Nantes chanted “Dieudonne” and booed the decision.

This was to be the first night of a French tour by the comic who has been convicted over half-a-dozen times of inciting racial hatred or of ant–Semitism.
