France's far-right leader Marine Le Pen was on Thursday placed under formal investigation on suspicion of disseminating violent images over tweets she posted of IS group violence, a judicial source said.

The investigation relates to three graphic images of IS group executions she posted on Twitter in December 2015, including the beheading of American journalist James Foley.

Le Pen denounced an earlier stage of the investigation as "political interference".
