Netherlands' Geert Wilders to face racism charges

18 December 2014 Last updated at 19:58 GMT

Dutch authorities are to prosecute far-right politician Geert Wilders over allegations he incited racial hatred against Moroccans.

The charges stem from an incident in March in which Mr Wilders is said to have led an anti-Moroccan chant, which later received more than 6,400 complaints.

Mr Wilders described the charges in a statement as "a travesty".
