Paris: Broadcaster France 24 demanded on Saturday the removal of images from one of its reports on an American demonstration that found its place in a clip of Donald Trump’s American election campaign.

Marie-Christine Saragosse, director of France Medias Monde, which oversees state media, said 24-hour news channel France 24 was “shocked to discover unauthorized use of images” from one of his reports during the recent public unrest in Minneapolis.

“France 24 is opposed in principle… to the use of its images in any partisan clip and is indignant that its images have been re-edited and their meaning distorted, seriously undermining the journalistic work of its teams and its intellectual property ”Zaragoza said.

She added that the broadcaster was calling for immediate retrieval of the footage, adding that it wondered whether to take legal action if this demand was not met.
