Two reporters and the directors of the Le Monde newspaper were found guilty of racist defamation for an article about Israel. The Versailles court of appeals ruled on an article that ran June 4, 2002, called “Israel-Palestine: The Cancer.” The court ordered the directors, Edgar Morin and Jean-Marie Colombani, as well as the two authors, to pay a symbolic one Euro in damages to a human-rights alliance and to Lawyers Without Borders, and ordered Le Monde to publish a condemnation of the article.
