Arrests made after investigation into French far right

Three far-right activists in France have been charged with aggravated violence after being exposed in an undercover investigation by Al Jazeera.

The three men, who were arrested and charged last week in the northern city of Lille, are accused of involvement in an assault filmed by an undercover reporter for Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit.

A fourth activist has been released without charge, according to the Lille prosecutor’s office.

The attack was broadcast in a two-part documentary, Generation Hate, released last December.
