Bob Dylan charged over interview

French authorities have filed preliminary charges against Bob Dylan over a 2012 interview in which he is quoted comparing Croatians to Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.

Paris prosecutor's office spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre said on Tuesday that the charges of "public insult and inciting hate" were filed in mid-November.

The charges stemmed from a lawsuit by a Croatian community group in France over an interview featuring the US musician in Rolling Stone magazine.

A lawyer for the group, Ivan Jurasinovic, says they are not seeking monetary damages but only want the legendary singer to apologise to the Croatian people for the comments.

He did not say why they filed the case in France. France has strict laws punishing hate speech and racist remarks.

Representatives for the singer could not immediately be reached for comment.
